“First World Problems” in Chinese Microcinema (CHI4520.01)

Ginger Lin

“First world problems” has become a prolific meme generating phrase. However, it can have deeper meaning. How is Chinese society dealing with its own “First world problems,” while simultaneously dealing with those of its own unique history? These are some of the questions we will explore through the lenses of Chinese Microcinema makers. Students will naturally advance their Mandarin linguistic competencies as they view, analyze, and discuss Microcinema from China and Taiwan.
