    Title: Chinese animation and socialism : from animators’ perspectives / edited by Daisy Yan Du.

    Description: Leiden ; Boston : Brill, 2022. | Series: China studies, 1570-1344 ; volume 43 | Includes bibliographical references and index. | This work consists of expanded versions of the animators’ roundtable presentations translated into English. | Summary: “This volume on Chinese animation and socialism is the first in English that introduces the insider viewpoints of socialist animators at the Shanghai Animation Film Studio in China. Although a few monographs have been published in English on Chinese animation, they are from the perspective of scholars rather than of the animators who personally worked on the films, as discussed in this volume. Featuring hidden histories and names behind the scenes, precious photos, and commentary on rarely seen animated films, this book is a timely and useful reference book for researchers, students, animators, and fans interested in Chinese and even world animation. This book originated from the Animators’ Roundtable Forum (April 2017 at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology), organized by the Association for Chinese Animation Studies”– Provided by publisher.
