In this episode of The Negotiation, we speak with Aynne Kokas, Associate Professor of Media Studies at the University of Virginia., and author of the award-winning book Hollywood Made in China. We cover a lot of ground in this 30-minute episode talking about the major players in the China cinema ecosystem, Hollywood’s tendency to self-censor to make sure they are kosher with the PRC, and whether this influences the types of movies getting funded or even the writing and casting. Naturally, we turned our attention to the release of Mulan in Chinas theatres this weekend and talk about the tepid response it received there and why, as well as any impact the impending ban on TikTok or WeChat might have on the movie industry in China. Enjoy!
