I want to share this Chinese film 英雄 (ying1xiong2), released as Hero in the US market by the Miramax production studio in 2002, as an example of the Chinese cultural experience we studied in Unit 2. The film is a fantastical story of cunning and bloodshed projected upon the Warring States period of Chinese history. The director, Zhang Yimou, a celebrated dean of contemporary Chinese cinema, mixes mesmerizing scenes of wuxia Chinese martial arts with spectacular orchestration of color and precise arrangement of sound. Jet Li plays a minor official of the Qin state amid a backdrop of conflict and the story reflects on ideas of Chinese unity.
The film can be seen on Netflix with traditional Chinese subtitles as well as English subtitles. I also think it might be nice to view together as a class.
