Describe the representation of the East-Asian culture in the Cymbeline poster and the Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon video cover East Asian culture has changed such as many other cultures over the last few centuries. The famous Cymbeline that has recently been publicized represents East Asian culture as heartless, evil monsters that get the fun of killing each other, as the white Europeans were considered the dominant and the more inferior compared to east Asians as it shows in the poster but the CTHD cover represents east Asians heartfelt, good people that fight for protection than for thrill and that involve equality in the east Asians culture.
