Drama and Movies in China

China has recently burst into the mainstream with their own breed of movies and dramas. Gaining
world recognition for movies such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon China is emerging as  a serious contender for cinema dollars around the world. Television is still a ways behind the Korean and Taiwanese industry but catching up as well.

ESL teachers will find the cinema to be an inexpensive getaway from everyday life. Many teachers grow very fond of Chinese cinema, even if manners differ quite a bit from the western counterparts. The movie selection is diverse and many western movies are often on the roster. You should take the time to see some Chinese cinema as it is a great way to learn about the local cultures and customs. It gives you some great talking points with coworkers and students as well. Some cinemas offer special subtitled versions in the major cities.

One thing to be aware of is that China does censor some western movies. This does not usually affect the quality of the movie, but it may be startling for those not used to it.
