Dragon Inn: dir King Hu (1967)
23 July @ 7.00 pm - 9.00 pmFree
A newly restored print of the martial-arts classic, a highly watchable and action-packed tale of Ming-dynasty intrigue.
The first film King Hu made after moving to Taiwan from Hong Kong in search of more creative freedom, Dragon Inn (Long men kezhan) combines rhythmic editing, meticulous choreography, and gorgeous widescreen compositions with a refinement that was new to the wuxia genre. Its blockbuster success breathed new life into a classic formula and established Hu as one of Chinese cinema’s most audacious innovators.
