Slaying the dragon( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes racial and gender stereotyping of Asian women in U.S. motion pictures as well as other filmic media, with "Reloaded" updating the original documentary by noting the effects of globalization and a changing population within the past 25 years. Includes interviews with actresses and other Asian American women who describe their experiences of such stereotyping. From the racist use of white actors to portray Asians in early Hollywood films - through the success of Anna May Wong's sinister dragon lady, to seductive Suzie Wong and the subservient '50's geisha girls, to the Asian American anchorwoman of today - these fascinating films show how images of exoticism and docility socially and psychologically impact Asian American women. "Reloaded" continues with looks at the past 25 years of representation of Asian and Asian American women in U.S. visual media - from blockbuster films and network television, to Asian American cinema and YouTube - to explore what's changed, what's been recycled, and what we can hope for in the future
