Martial Arts Madness

120 min

Overview

Fridays at 10pm in March.

This March we're going mad! It's Martial Arts Madness as we celebrate 2 martial arts legends: Donnie Yen and Jackie Chan.

Donnie Yen can now be seen in Rogue One but kung-fu fans have known for years that "he is one with the Force and the Force is with him!"

Jackie Chan, or should I say Oscar recipient Jackie Chan? That's right, last year Jackie Chan won an Honorary Oscar. In his speech he said "After 56 years in the film industry, making over 200 films, I’ve broken so many bones, finally this is mine. I want to thank you, Hong Kong, such an incredible city, my hometown, my hood, who make me. China, my country, I am proud to be Chinese. Thank you, Hollywood, for all of those years teaching me so many things, and also make me a little bit famous. I’m just honored to be here."

Fridays in March we screen some of the films that made these men martial arts legends!

These films also star or feature fight choreography by: Jet Li, Yuen Woo-ping, Sammo Hung, Tony Leung, Maggie Cheung, Zhang Ziyi and more!
