Cinema of Displaced Identity in Contesting British Chinese Identity.


    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    In this chapter I give an account of my work as a writer, producer and director of films. Throughout the chapter I situate myself as a British Chinese filmmaker, but also identify as British East Asian and I explore how that has informed my work. I draw on key debates on identity, representation hybridity, migrancy and post-colonialism to frame my work. I also describe the stylistic approaches I have used in my films and how I have utilized genre as a way to inflect notions of hybridity and otherness.
