These film guides were developed by Julia Keblinska, The Ohio State University and are available online for classroom use worldwide. The film guides can be accessed at EASC's Film Guide page. The film guide project was coordinated by The Ohio State University's East Asian Studies Center (EASC) to incorporate East Asian Studies into the curriculum at all levels, including community colleges, liberal arts and other institutions, for undergraduate and high school courses. This project was supported by a U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant to The Ohio State University East Asian Studies Center.
