Chen examines the cinematic technique of weaving narrative threads from different characters' perspective--instead of following one single storyline--in the work of four filmmakers. Looking in turn at horizontal, vertical, and three-dimensional mosaic, he covers Alejandro Gonzalez I[+ or -]arritu: contemporary mosaic of socioeconomic and geopolitical spaces; Atom Egoyan: the diasporic and cinematic mosaic of de-territorialization/re-territorialization and actualization/virtualization; Hou Hsiao-hsien: historical mosaic of multilayered mise-en-scene; and Michael Haneke: fluid mosaic, crossing and recrossing boundaries.
