Description

In this action-packed original co-production from the Independent Film Channel, filmmaker Ian Taylor takes a behind-the-scenes look at the stars, fighting styles and weaponry of Hong Kong cinema from its earliest beginnings to the latest big-budget epics.


Through rarely seen film clips, CHOP SOCKY: CINEMA HONG KONG chronicles the genre’s explosive growth from the early adventures of Wong Fei Hung, the first martial arts hero, to the ground-breaking choreographed work of Chang Cheh (The One Armed Swordsman), and the intense hyper-realistic fight sequences by Bruce Lee (Enter the Dragon). Through stop motion analysis and commentary by filmmaking masters like Lar Kar-Leung (The 36th Chamber of Shaolin), the film analyzes the innovative techniques and aesthetics that have elevated the Kung-Fu flick to pop-culture eminence.
