For Lou Ann Thompson:

The films of Zhang Yimou are all very good representations of women in parts 
of Chinese
culture. In particular, consider Raise the Red Lantern, The Road Home, or Not 
One Less,
for examples.   You could do worse than to use several of his films in your 
first course.
The films are very "teachable," in my experience with them.
