No to time travelling in #china

A post shared by Lingofacts (@lingofacts) on

In 2011, the Chinese government passed guidelines that would largely prohibit any time travel plot devices in television and movies. According to the State Administration of Radio Film and Television, time travel represents “ambiguous values” and “lack of active ideological significance.”

In March 2011, the Chinese government’s State Administration of Radio Film and Television issued a new set of guidelines, which strongly disapproved of “fantasy, time-travel, random compilations of mythical stories, bizarre plots, absurd techniques, even propagating feudal superstitions, fatalism and reincarnation, ambiguous moral lessons, and a lack of positive thinking.”
