The Man from Hong Kong

introduced by director Brian Trenchard-Smith

director:
Brian Trenchard-Smith
cast:
Jimmy Wang, George Lazenby

Also known as The Dragon Flies, this first Australian martial arts film stars Jimmy Wang (The One-Armed Swordsman) and George Lazenby (On Her Majesty's Secret Service) and tells the story of a drug trafficking ring operating between Hong Kong and Australia. Throw in Australian stunt master Grant Page, the star of Stunt Rock (also presented in IIFFF’s retrospective “Ozploitation and Beyond”), and you’ve got a stellar cast to bring together this classic film with a great mix of comedy, martial arts and elegantly filmed action. IIFFF will be screening a unique Hong Kong version of the film with English subtitles.
