Connolly, Peter

Description

As China’s security posture and foreign policy become more assertive, stories about evacuation operations message these capabilities to the Chinese population and to the world.

dc.description.abstractAs China’s security posture and foreign policy become more assertive, stories about evacuation operations message these capabilities to the Chinese population and to the world. Chinese war movies in recent years have become more nationalistic and explicit. These movies have included The Taking of Tiger Mountain (智取威虎山), 2014; Wolf Warrior (战狼), 2015; Operation Mekong (湄公河行動), 2016; and Sky Hunter (空天猎), 2017. Most recently films have featured the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) operating abroad in reference to overseas citizen protection operations in Wolf Warrior 2 (2017) and Operation Red Sea (2018). Given that all movies must be approved for release by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), this is a significant trend, which Part 2 in this series will explore.
