China’s Lunar New Year movie season is like America’s summer blockbuster season… on steroids. And it got that way thanks to The Dream Factory — a wry 1997 comedy directed by Feng Xiaogang, who’d come to be known as “the Chinese Spielberg.” Host Rico Gagliano gets a crash course on the movie from experts on Chinese cinema, including City University of New York’s Ying Zhu and UCLA’s Michael Berry.
