Event description
A study day for KS3 Chinese Mandarin to help pupils gain understanding of both China’s history and contemporary culture through film.

About this Event

This study day for KS3 Chinese Mandarin is designed to help pupils gain understanding of both China’s history and contemporary culture through an exploration of the nation’s cinema. Drawing on various historical and cultural contexts, analysis of Chinese cinema can help to separate myth from history and can help to develop awareness of China as a nation today, by showing its embrace of modernity. Pupils will be provided the opportunity to investigate these themes in depth using textual analysis of key scenes in selected Chinese films, such as Not One Less (2000) directed by Zhang Yimou and Please Vote For Me (Weijun Chen 2007). They will also watch a full length screening of a modern Chinese film. This study day is designed to develop a cultural awareness that will enhance language learning and understanding of Chinese traditions as well as China today.
