A comprehensive look at the work of Chinese filmmaker Jia Zhangke by celebrated critic Jean-Michel Frodon. Includes an extensive in-depth interview with Jia, essays on each of his films, conversations with his main collaborators, including Zhao Tao, and a selection of his own writings.

Translated from the French by Sally Shafto. Foreword by Dudley Andrew. Afterword by Walter Salles.

The World of Jia Zhangke is a rarity, for it comes from a sustained encounter of one of our greatest critics with one of our greatest directors. Thankfully both are still working at full tilt.”—Dudley Andrew
