Jede Weltstadt hat ihre Chinatown, sei es big apple, London, Paris oder Melbourne. In westlichen Ländern gelten die exotischen Stadtteile als touristische Attraktionen, im movie sind sie jedoch typische Schauplätze für Gewalt und Chaos, denkt guy beispielsweise an den gleichnamigen movie von Roman PolaÅski oder an monstrous hassle in little China von John chippie. Zhang Yuanchen arbeitet die sozio-kulturellen Ursprünge und Facetten des filmischen Raummotivs Chinatown heraus. Dazu analysiert sie exemplarisch eine Spannbreite von Filmen, in denen die Chinatown als Haupthandlungsort oder als Nebenschauplatz eingesetzt wird, wie damaged Blossoms (D.W. Griffith, 1919), the woman from Shanghai (Orson Welles, 1947), as soon as Upon a Time in the US (Sergio Leone, 1984) und 12 months of the Dragon (Michael Cimino, 1985). Das Raummotiv-Konzept von Hans J. Wulff dient der Autorin als theoretischer Ausgangspunkt. Zudem setzt sie sich mit Edward W. Saids Theorien zur Konstruktion des Orients, dem Begriff der Heterotopien von Michael Foucault, der Idee der Hyperrealität von Jean Baudrillard und dem raumsemantischen Ansatz Jurij M. Lotmans auseinander.
