Chinese film has developed for 117 years, from 1905 until 2022. As we all know, the theatre has had a close relationship with the development of film since the first Chinese film was produced. The influence of theatre is manifold; those have been adapted for film and as a concept that profoundly influences Chinese directors. From the early concept of Ying xi in Chinese film to today's new fusion of theatre and film, the author focuses on a specific genre of film that is heavily influenced by theatre and is constantly innovating and developing, known as 'Theatre Film.'
