Summary note
"Jia Zhangke on Jia Zhangke is an extended dialogue between film scholar Michael Berry and the internationally acclaimed Chinese filmmaker. Drawing from extensive interviews and public talks, this volume offers a portrait of Jia's life, art, and approach to filmmaking. Jia and Berry's conversations range from Jia's childhood and formative years to extensive discussions of his major narrative films, including such classics as Xiao Wu, Platform, The World, Still Life, and A Touch of Sin. Jia gives a first-hand account of his influences, analyzes the Chinese film industry, and offers his thoughts on everything from film music and working with actors to cinematography and screenwriting. From industry and economics to art and politics, Jia Zhangke on Jia Zhangke represents the single most comprehensive document of the director's candid thoughts on the art and challenges of filmmaking"-- Provided by publisher.
