Audiovisual representations of the Chinese minority in the US

Part of the lecture series and collaborative interdisciplinary research project "Democratisation and Power Structures". The ability of cinema to shape individual and public imagery has long been discussed across disciplines (Fluck 2003; Gallese & Guerra 2020), and it is especially complex when power relations among different ethno-linguistic groups are at stake. On the one hand, when a majority group represents a minority, it is common to have representations that can be defined as ethnotypes, a fictional rationalisation of difference (van Doorslaer et al. 2016). On the other hand, when the members of a minority reclaim representativity and become involved in the creative process of filmmaking, their challenge would be to cater to both majority and minority expectations (Morrison 1992). In both cases, films are cultural representations where characters are diegetic devices functional to reinforcing or subverting the existing social hierarchies (Ramos Pinto & Mubaraki 2020).
