Asian Pacific American Festival – King Hu’s “Dragon Inn”
May 17, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pmFree
As part of our Asian Pacific American Festival (APAFEST), we are delighted to present this classic film. A superb entryway into the highly stylized, tightly choreographed wuxia genre of martial arts cinema. Dragon Inn was a global breakthrough for the form’s greatest practitioner, King Hu. Its influence in the genre was – and is – huge. From challenging traditional expectations of female roles, to the formation of many of the genre’s archetypes that are still recognizable in the martial arts films of today, this is a thrilling landmark of film history.
