Can Asia Be­come Hol­ly­wood?

In­ter­na­tional box of­fice now makes up more than 65 per­cent of Hol­ly­wood film box of­fice. Clearly, China and Ja­pan have be­come the No. 2 and No. 3 box-of­fice ter­ri­to­ries. It has been said that China will sur­pass the United States as be­ing the largest box-of­fice ter­ri­tory by 2021. Given the im­por­tance of Asia’s moviego­ing pub­lic, will Asian film­mak­ers and Asian sto­ries re­place Hol­ly­wood? [Thurs­day, Dec. 4, 11 a.m., Bougainvil­lea Hall]
