Yang ± Yin: Gender in Chinese Cinema


Stanley Kwan, 1998

United kingdom



Film director Stanley KWAN traces the evolution of his identity as a gay man through the films he grew up with, demonstrating that Chinese cinema (from Hong Kong, Taiwan and mainland China) has dealt with questions of gender and sexuality more frankly and more provocatively than any other national cinema.



Stanley KWAN was born on October 9, 1957 in Hong Kong as Jinpang GUAN. He is a director and producer, known for Lan Yu (2001), Rouge (1987) and Hold You Tight (1998).
