A Tribute To King Hu


A tribute to King Hu is coming in to New York in June. For the first time 35mm prints of his films will be shown on a large screen. Films shown include A Touch of Zen, Raining In The Mountain, Come Drink With Me, Fate Of Lee Khan and more.

Master of the martial arts movie, Chinese cinematic titan King Hu revolutionized the wuxia/swordplay film, introducing a refined sense of aesthetics and sense of mysticism to the genre that was borne out of his lifelong love for Chinese opera. With its unique blend of thrilling action and dazzling stylistic direction, Hu’s style influenced decades of subsequent Asian cinema.

Presented in conjunction with the Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York.

JUNE 6TH – 17TH 2014
