AbstractThe Hong Kong filmmaker Ann Hui's The Postmodern Life of My Aunt [2006] mirrors the neoliberal conditions of contemporary China, which have had a devastating impact on women in the People's Republic. The film vertiginously crosses genres, and the narrative moves from light comedy to melodrama as its style vacillates between Pop Art excess and social realism. This essay looks at what makes The Postmodern Life of My Aunt "postmodern" within the context of post-Mao, post- Deng China. It also considers how transnational Chinese cinema opens a space for criticism from female filmmakers with a particular vision of Chinese women within global film culture. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
