The Grandmaster
director:
Wong Kar Wai
cast:
Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Ziyi Zhang, Chang Chen

Based on the life of martial arts wunderkind, Ip Man (Bruce Lee’s teacher), Wong Kar Wai’s latest is part biography, part historical drama, tracing the legendary kungfu master’s rise to power. Set against the politically turbulent background of 1930s and 1950s China, the film depicts the challenges of power and pride amongst the ruling kungfu dynasties, and features the stunning performances and cinematography that cinephiles have come to expect from Wong Kar Wai. Cosponsored by the Hong Kong Students Association.
