In the first part of "Telling a Good China Story", Professor Shen Yizhen focused on comparing the difference between Chinese and American films in expressing the national image, and used the films "War Wolf" and "Saving Soldier Ryan" that students are familiar with to illustrate that contemporary directors will The construction of the national image is kept in mind, and the film is used as an important window for other countries to understand China and defend the national image.
