"Qi Wang's radical intervention revaluates Chinese independent cinema's challenge to the official and commercial media. Instead of emphasizing the realist determination to document everyday life in contemporary China since the 1990s, she shows us how these films also invoke history through personal memory in their attempt to come to terms with the earthquakes in Chinese social, cultural, and political values of the last half century. Memory, Subjectivity and Independent Chinese Cinema is a dense, detailed, and riveting account of the postsocialist generation's subjectivity. Richly illustrated and informed by new research and numerous interviews, its shining audacity takes my breath away." - Chris Berry, King's College London
