GHOSTLIFE OF THIRD CINEMA: Asian American Film and Video
Glen M. Mimura

For Glen M. Mimura, Asian American cinema is the spectral return of 
the international film movement known as Third Cinema. Tracing 
contemporary Asian American cinema as a continuation of Third 
Cinema's radical enterprise of making marginalized subjects visible 
in the First World, Ghostlife of Third Cinema examines such potent 
issues as diasporic identity, historical memory, and queer sexuality 
through sophisticated readings of a wide range of film and video 

"Ghostlife of Third Cinema is a learned, beautifully written study, 
nothing less than a revisioning of U.S. history through the optic of 
Asian American visual representation." -Lisa Lowe, University of 
California, San Diego

Glen M. Mimura is associate professor of film and media and Asian 
American studies at the University of California, Irvine.
