Screening of the film will be followed by a talk, “Vulgar Materialisms and Asian Animalities.”

Mila Zuo’s research and teaching interests include international art and non-Western cinemas, body studies, race and gender studies, celebrity cultures, and contemporary film theory. She received her M.A. and Ph.D. in cinema and media studies from UCLA. She is currently working on a book about body politics in contemporary Chinese cinemas, proposing that 21st-century Chinese identity is an interactive and reactive media phenomenon imagined through screen performances of sex, health, and beauty. Her essays have been published in Journal of Chinese Cinemas and Celebrity Studies Journal. Zuo has forthcoming chapters appearing in Asian cinema anthologies on the topics of “beauty capital” and Chinese film star Fan Bingbing, and resistant femininities in East Asian women’s cinema.
