Summary/Abstract: The reforms and open door policy of China after the Cultural revolution required a renewal of the basics of Chinese classic culture, part of which is film – which originates from the ancient Chinese art of shadow puppetry. The very concept of filmmaking was reinvented by the so-called Fifth generation of film directors. Driven by the idea of modernizing Chinese film, in the beginning of the eighties they created a new film language which is dominated by visual consciousness, intertwined light, color, sound and rhythm. Through their work one can see an image of China – a land filled with simple and ancient customs.
