Korea's Occupied Cinemas, 1893-1948 compares and contrasts the development of cinema in Korea during the Japanese occupation (1910-1945) and US Army Military (1945-1948) periods within the larger context of cinemas in occupied territories. It differs from previous studies by drawing links between the arrival in Korea of modern technology and ideas, and the cultural, political and social environment, as it follows the development of exhibition, film policy, and filmmaking from 1893 to 1948. During this time, Korean filmmakers seized every opportunity to learn production techniques and practice their skills, contributing to the growth of a national cinema despite the conditions produced by their occupation by colonial and military powers. At the same time, Korea served as an important territory for the global expansion of the American and Japanese film industries, and, after the late 1930s, Koreans functioned as key figures in the co-production of propaganda films that were designed to glorify loyalty to the Japanese Empire. For these reasons, and as a result of the tensions created by divided loyalties, the history of cinema in Korea is a far more dynamic story than simply that of a national cinema struggling to develop its own narrative content and aesthetics under colonial conditions.

"Race for Empire" offers a profound and challenging reinterpretation of nationalism, racism, and wartime mobilization during the Asia-Pacific war. In parallel case studies - of Japanese Americans mobilized to serve in the United States Army and of Koreans recruited or drafted into the Japanese military - T. Fujitani examines the U.S. and Japanese empires as they struggled to manage racialized populations while waging total war. Fujitani probes governmental policies and analyzes representations of these soldiers - on film, in literature, and in archival documents - to reveal how characteristics of racism, nationalism, capitalism, gender politics, and the family changed on both sides. He demonstrates that the United States and Japan became increasingly alike over the course of the war, perhaps most tellingly in their common attempts to disavow racism even as they reproduced it in new ways and forms.

During the 1920s and 1930s, in cities from Beijing to Bombay, Tokyo to Berlin, Johannesburg to New York, the Modern Girl made her sometimes flashy, always fashionable appearance in city streets and cafes, in films, advertisements, and illustrated magazines. Modern Girls smoked cigarettes; they wore high heels and sexy clothes. They applied lipstick and face creams and other cosmetics. Adorned in provocative attire, in hot pursuit of romantic love, Modern Girls appeared on the surface to disregard prescribed roles of dutiful daughter, wife, and mother. Contemporaries debated whether the Modern Girl was looking for sexual, economic, or political emancipation, or whether she was little more than an image, a hollow product of the emerging global commodity culture. The contributors to this collection track the Modern Girl as she emerged as a global phenomenon during the 1920s and 1930s.Scholars of history, women's studies, English, cultural studies, and area studies follow the Modern Girl around the world, analyzing her manifestations in Germany, Australia, China, Japan, France, India, the United States, Russia, and South Africa. Along the way, they demonstrate how the economic structures and cultural flows that shaped a particular form of modern femininity crossed national and imperial boundaries. At the same time, they highlight the gendered dynamics of interwar processes of racial formation, showing how images of the Modern Girl were used to shore up or critique racial formations. This volume concludes with commentaries by Kathy Peiss, Miriam Silverberg, and Timothy Burke. It's contributors include: Davarian L. Baldwin; Tani E. Barlow; Timothy Burke; Liz Conor; Madeleine Y. Dong; Anne E. Gorsuch; Ruri Ito; Kathy Peiss; Uta G. Poiger; Priti Ramamurthy; Mary Louise Roberts; Barbara Sato; Miriam Silverberg; Lynn M. Thomas; and, Alys Eve Weinbaum.

Disc 1: Angels on the streets: Myeong-ja and Yong-gil are brother and sister, sold to guttersnipes when they were little. Now they must beg for each meal. One day, Yong-gil decides to run away from the guttersnipes and seeks refuge with a group of orphans. Bang Seong-bin witnesses Yong-gil being bullied by the orphans and brings him to his own home. 4-5 other orphans are already living there. Seong-bin wants to start up a welfare business for orphans and buys a plot of land to build an orphanage with the help of Ahn In-gyu, his doctor brother-in-law. The business starts up in earnest after his new orphanage, Hyangrinwon, is established. Meanwhile, Ahn In-gyu saves Myeong-ja, whom he ran into by chance, and has her work for him as a nurse.
Disc 2: Spring of Korean peninsula: Film producer Lee Yeong-il is introduced to Jeong-hee, his friend's little sister. Unable to find an appropriate slot for her in his movie, he gets her a job in a record company and watches out for her. Director Heo Hoon, who is making the film 'The Story of Chun-hyang' with Yeong-il, fires the lead actress of the film, Anna, when she causes too much trouble. Instead, Jeong-hee is hired in her place. Just as Jeong-hee proves herself worthy of the casting and the film-making progresses smoothly, Yeong-il and Heo Hoon face financial difficulties. Yeong-il turns to embezzlement in desperation and is thrown in jail.
Disc 3 : Volunteer: Chun-ho and Bun-ok love each other deeply. After his father dies, Chun-ho works as the supervisor of landlord Park's property in Seoul, and is torn up about the reality where Korean people cannot volunteer to serve in the army. Jealous of Chun-ho, Kim Deok-sam snatches the supervisor position from him. Meanwhile, Bun-ok is heartbroken after seeing Chun-ho with Soo-ae, the younger sister of Landlord Kim. On the other hand, Chun-ho sees Bun-ok together with his friend Chang-sik and gets the wrong impression about their relationship. In the end, Chang-sik learns how to drive and leaves for Seoul while Bun-ok and Chun-ho resolve their misunderstandings. When Koreans become eligible to serve in the army, Chun-ho volunteers and the news of his acceptance appears in the papers. Landlord Kim is greatly moved at this news and promises to watch over his house. Chun-ho gets on the troop train, leaving his beloved Bun-ok behind.
Disc 4: Straits of Chosun: Seong-gi is back home and bowing his head in front of the photo of his older brother Seong-cheon, who died while fighting in the war.

Seong-gi had moved in with Geum-sook but when he hears about his brother's death, he leaves her without knowing that she is pregnant with his child. Seong-gi goes to his uncle who had been watching after him until then and tells him that he will volunteer to serve in the army, to follow his brother's footsteps.
