Film Studies: The Dionysian Spirit in China's 1980s: Interpretations on Literary Text and Film "Red Sorghum"; Women's Writing and "The Lover"

By a comparative analysis on Mo Yan's novel "Red Sorghum Clan" and Zhang Yimou's film "Red Sorghum", this talk will review the Dionysian spirit in the cultural context of the 1980s.
