The Chung Wah Association of Western Australia was founded in 1909. Based in Perth, Chung Wah is the largest Chinese organisation in the whole of Western Australia. Their bi-monthly Chinese-English bilingual magazine is made available to members of the association as well as the wider community in Perth.
Scope of work
For this issue I was asked to write about Asian films from a Western perspective. I’m a huge movie fan, so this particular article was a great deal of fun to write.
The mainstream movie market has been remaking Asian films for well over 50 years. My article discusses Hollywood makeovers of some of the most popular and successful Asian films ever made.
