Subway Cinema’s Co-Founder and Programmer Goran Topalovic talked with our Gadi Elkon about the upcoming Old Kung Fu Fest: Swordfighting Heroes Edition.
The Old School Kung Fu Fest is back for its 10th anniversary, and this time we’re flying through the air and chopping down fools with the biggest retrospective of Taiwanese wuxia (sword fighting hero) movies ever seen in New York City. Wuxia movies have a long history in Chinese cinema, but when King Hu’s Dragon Inn premiered in 1967, it kicked off a wuxia revival that reinvented action movies, so we’ve decided to celebrate the wuxia movies from King Hu’s homeland of Taiwan by going big with 12 movies on the big screen and three more online.
Goran and Gadi talk about the history behind choosing King Hu’s films and his great legacy.
