Chapter six departs from the practice of exploring horizons of identity to test the limits of nostalgia and solastalgia as a critical approach to reading fiction and film, by looking at how both the colonial future and past are remembered. The chapter includes several close readings including a concluding rumination on the political uses of cinematic murder. Films considered in this chapter include colonial era government produced propaganda documentaries and the work of Wang Tong and Lin Zhengsheng.

Keywords:   Wang Tong, Lin Zhengsheng, costume drama, colonialism, identity-politics, colonial documentary, nostalgia, solastalgia
