About this book


This book explores the intersections of film, justice, and the state in comparative perspective across a range of major Asian countries, including India, China, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, and Vietnam. The contributing authors cross the conventional border between the analysis of on-screen and off-screen intersections of law and cinema.
