China, the Giant Movie Market Hollywood Can't Quite Crack

Hosted by

Quentin Tarantino's latest film, Django Unchained, was suddenly pulled two weeks ago, after it had started to run in Chinese theaters for the first time. It was a stunning surprise, but not the first for Hollywood in China. With a billion consumers, China's a potential pot of gold for every industry, including Hollywood. But the search for financing, partnerships and potential viewers has been full of obstacles. The big question is, what does China really want? Kim Masters is editor at large of the Hollywood Reporter and host of The Business on KCRW.
