ABSTRACT

From the superficial perspective, the film has the aspect of the government promoted Main Theme Movies. Of course, this is not a film for socialist propaganda or ideological propaganda. After co-operation between the Kuoming Party and the Communist Party, Mao Zedong’s Communist Party became a new political force and made efforts to win the support of the people. During this process, Communist Party collect folk songs, through which they learn about the people and create new folk songs to spread communist ideology. Gu Qing is a member of the Eighth Route Army and is responsible for collecting folk songs. the In the sense that the Chinese Communist Party intends to practice the revolution for the people, the film basically reflects the mood of the government promoted Main Theme Movies. On the other hand, It cannot be overlooked that the film was created in the context of cultural root-seeking in the atmosphere of cultural fever in the 80s, which is an intellectual effort to find the logic of responding to the challenge. Seeking cultural roots also means discovering and inheriting superior Chinese cultural traditions, but if you can further think about it, we can extend the meaning to the active dimension of rebuilding and rewriting traditions from a critical angle. This paper is to talk about <Yellow Earth> in these three levels (the government promoted Main Theme Movies, cultural root-seeking , cultural reflection).
