The Chinese Martial Arts Film, Part II

Film Society of Lincoln Film Center presents Heroic Grace Part II, a series which includes some of the best Kung-Fu flicks of the ’70s and ’80s. Link

July 12 – 20
In keeping with martial arts movie tradition, the UCLA Film & Television Archive returns with this sequel to the successful Heroic Grace touring program launched in 2003. Heroic Grace II picks up where the first series left off. While the debut program focused on seminal films in the genre produced by the Shaw Bros. studio during the 1960s and early 70s, this installment carries the story forward through the ’70s and into the early ’80s, covering that enormously creative period when kung fu entered the popular lexicon in the West. Heroic Grace II accords a closer look at some of the most influential auteurs from this era.
