Transworlding (III): Hongyuan Jin (Economics), “The Influence of Foreign-born Directors on the US Film Industry”

Online:

March 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Tranworlding

This chapter is the quantitative analysis on whether foreign-born directors show higher film yields than native-born directors in terms of the domestic and international box office, and the number of awards (e.g. Oscars) and award nominations. The study is conducted on a data set that I collected from multiple sources, and the data set includes about 27 thousand US-produced films released between 1925 and 2018.
