Posted: Thursday, 17 March 2016 - 2:54pm

March 17, 2016. Princeton users have now on-line access to transcripts of documentary films and newsreels from China, 1946(?)-1985. The bulk of the items are from the Cultural Revolution, 1966-1976; all documents are in Chinese. The 1750 items were created by the Zhong yang xin wen ji lu dian ying zhi pian chang (Central Newsreel and Documentary Film Studio), a cinema company office in Henan province, China, which had nation-wide responsibilities.  This online version is directly based upon the previous microfilm set entitled The Chinese Filmscript and Advertisement Collection, and the text images are of intermediate quality and not full-text searchable. The collection is arranged into the four series Advertisements and Film Description Series, 1953-1966; Documentary and Newsreel Scripts, 1946 (?)-1985; Feature Filmscripts, undated; and Newspaper Clipping Scrapbook, 1950-1959. For more information, see the home page of the database.  The original items are held at Duke University.
