While recent Chinese film scholarship is increasingly attuned to transnational flows, much remains to be done on the world scale. By using ArcGIS to visualize and analyze the data in China film distribution and exhibition statistics compilation, 1949-1957 (1958) and 1958-1960 (1961), this presentation examines cinematic import-export in the early Cold War, presenting a preliminary mapping of a period when the P.R.C. vigorously sent films abroad both commercially and not-for-profit, and when foreign films dubbed in Mandarin vastly outnumbered domestic ones at home. Though film exchanges were mainly conducted with "brother nations" of the Soviet bloc, the map reveals many unexpected trajectories outside socialist circuits. Though my project contributes to an atlas of world cinema at a particular historical juncture, I hope to learn at AAS other GIS methods to explore the spatiality of cinema.
