"Coproducing Asia is a wonderful book that will have genuine and lasting significance. Stephanie DeBoer has produced a nuanced and practical account of the tensions and difficulties involved not only in the too rarely studied creative and business negotiations enabling a co-production, but also in the asymmetrical cultural investments and historical 'hauntings' at stake in such ventures and active in their differing sites of reception. It's a tour de force." --Meaghan Morris, author of Identity Anecdotes: Translation and Media Culture
"East Asia functions as a single film market, in many respects, but too few scholars have the acumen to look beyond national borders and linguistic barriers to plumb the depths of this crucial area of inquiry. DeBoer is a welcome exception to the rule." --Gina Marchetti, author of The Chinese Diaspora on American Screens: Race, Sex, and Cinema
