Are films censored in China?
Film awards: China censors Chloé Zhao's Oscars
Beijing (AP) - China has reacted with censorship and restraint to the historic success of the Beijing-born filmmaker Chloé Zhao at the Oscars.
Important state media, including the state news agency Xinhua and the state broadcaster CCTV, initially did not report at all on Monday about the awarding of the prize to the American, who had spent her childhood in China. Posts on the topic were partially deleted in social networks. A Beijing Foreign Ministry spokesman declined to comment on the grounds that it was "not a diplomatic matter".
Zhao was recognized for best director at the awards ceremony. Her film “Nomadland” also won two more Academy Awards for best film and the award for best female leading role, which went to Frances McDormand. With Zhao, a woman was honored with an Oscar for directing for only the second time in the 93-year history of the Oscar. She is also the first woman from China to win an Oscar.
At the beginning of March, the Chinese newspaper “Global Times” hailed Zhao as “China's pride” after she had already received an award at the Golden Globes. Then, however, an old interview with Zhao surfaced on the Chinese Internet in which she criticized the People's Republic as a “place of lies”. Advertising material and references to “Nomadland” have been deleted in the past few days. Information about the film also disappeared from Chinese ticket websites.
