This video explores how pervasive Orientalist images and themes have been in American cultural productions over the past few decades. Known as techno-Orientalism, this phenomenon has drawn the attention of many cultural critics. Composed of clips from movies like Blade Runner and Star Wars and interviews with a scholar, a cultural blogger, and a playwright whose works engage with this topic, the video touches on the problems and hopes of techno-Orientalism.
Please join the USC U.S.-China Institute for the screening of Better Angels (善良的天使), a documentary film written and directed by two-time Academy Award winner Malcolm Clarke. Post-screening discussion will be with Clarke, co-executive producer David Dreier, and producers William Mundell and Han Yi.
