Lau Kar-leung / 1983, USA
190min total / 35mm
Portland film collector and Hollywood Theatre programmer Dan Halsted brings Kung Fu Theater to Seattle for a night of rare 35mm screenings!
The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter is one of the real-deal fan favorite Shaw Brothers films, this kinetic later-period masterpiece is packed with some of the studios finest stars and fight sequences, and helmed by Lau Kar-leung (director of the equally phenomenal THE 36TH CHAMBER OF SHAOLIN). Fu Sheng, Lily Li and the great Gordon Liu headline this tale of two brothers who survive a clan massacre and seek revenge, leading to ultra-violent, acrobatic smackdowns (including the dazzling titular pole fighting) that will leave you in cinematic traction.
