After a lengthy hiatus the Wasp & Orchid Martial Arts Choreography Film Series makes a kick-ass return for the month of September!
We’ll be starting things off again in style by screening 2008’s Ip Man, starring one of the most talented actors of martial arts cinema Donnie Yen. Taking place during the Sino-Japanese war, the film is a semi-biographical account of Ip Man, the Wing Chun master who rallied resistance against the Japanese occupation in the city of Foshan and eventually became mentor to Bruce Lee. With martial arts coordinator Kuang Hsiung and action director Sammo Hung, the combat sequences are nothing short of visually astounding.
