AbstractThis article revisits concepts of transnational cinema and examines
cinematic trends and phenomena from the past decade or so
through the lens of the transnational. The first case study interrogates
the cinematic ambitions of China and their impact on the
United States, and proposes a deeper engagement with the notion
of soft power for the analysis of such competitive and concessional
forms of transnationalism. The second case study argues
that three cinematic trends – namely the new wave of slow
cinema, the new genre of ecocinema, and the new ethos of poor
cinema – display connections on a transnational level without
recourse to national agendas or initiatives. The article theorizes
from these two sets of actual cases that transnational cinema can
serve as a conceptual framework that is both inescapably national
and inadvertently nation-less.
