Call for Papers: the First Special Issue

*Screening Revolution and Revolutionizing Cinema in East Asia*

/CineEast/is a new academic journal dedicated to critical analysis of 
East Asian Cinema. We are pleased to announce that we are organizing our 
first call for papers forthis special issue focusing on the intimate 
relationship developed between cinema and revolution in East Asia. This 
inaugural special issue aims to question the political and cultural 
identities of East Asian cinema by examining the continuing interplay of 
cinema with revolutions that sought political change, such as 
anti-imperialism, anti-colonialism, civil uprising, political upheaval 
and democratic movements.

In East Asia, since its inception, the history of cinema has always been 
a history of revolution in which film was not simply just an apparatus 
for propaganda, but also an institution of resistance and opposition. 
East Asian countries shared their memories of building and restoring 
national and cultural identities throughout and between the First and 
Second World Wars along with military coups, and democratic movements. 
As the idea of revolution helped to bring about more democracy in East 
Asia, it also impacted on every aspect of the film industry from the 
training of filmmakers to the oversight of scripts and control over 
exhibition including imported films. In this respect, we initially 
suggest that such a narratological thematics of ‘revolution and cinema’ 
is fundamentalto the possibilities of reconstructing a history of East 
Asian cinema, questioning not only geopolitical, but also de-westernized 
concepts of East Asian Cinema.

In this spirit, we invite submissions that investigate the fascinating 
and complicated connections between cinema and revolution in East Asia. 
We are especially interested in particular East Asian cinematic 
practices given shape by and through revolutions and those filmmakers 
who carved out (or still are carving out) a space for resistance and 
opposition within cinema.
