About this show

Video essays that explore the intersection of art, culture, and big ideas written & produced by FEE's Director of Media, Sean W. Malone.

November 7, 2019

The entertainment industry in America has a big problem... Chinese censorship. China is a make or break market for Hollywood movies, and a major player in film financing. But the audiences and money come with strings attached. China's Communist Party picks and chooses what its people are able to watch, and what's deemed acceptable ranges from laughable to enraging. In this episode of Out of Frame, we look at how China influences our entertainment and how we can fight back.
