Hong Kong cinema exploded into world culture during the 1990s, driven by its linkage with Hollywood’s dynamic new digital special effects technologies. This book provides essential historical background to that remarkable set of events by analyzing the culture, political and technological network surrounding Tsui Hark’s masterful but under-appreciated Zu Warriors From the Magic Mountain. Schroeder examines how the film transformed Hong Kong action cinema from the 1980s to the present, which resulted in its rise as a dominant transnational style in close affiliation with the transformation of Hollywood cinema into a digital technology driven global enterprise.
