This meeting honors the Paul Fonoroff Collection, a unique and invaluable archive of print materials and ephemera documenting nearly a century of Chinese cinema and media culture, and recently acquired by the C. V. Starr East Asian Library at the University of California, Berkeley. The conference will span two and half days of scholarly talks and workshops, in conjunction with a museum exhibition in the grand atrium of the Berkeley Art Museum of rare Chinese film posters. There will also be a series of six public screenings of early Chinese cinema at Berkeley’s Pacific Film Archive.
