From the Metrograph press release of upcoming shows:
One Weekend Only
6TH OLD SCHOOL KUNG FU FEST
Subway Cinema, the crew behind the legendary New York Asian Film Festival (now in its 15th year), is teaming up with Metrograph to unleash the 6th edition of the annual Old School Kung Fu Fest (OSKFF), which celebrates the rarest, wildest, and most incredible martial arts and action cinema from the sixties to the nineties. Declared “an intensely amazing event” (Badass Digest) and a “kick-ass fest” (Time Out New York), this year’s OSKFF will focus on the output of Golden Harvest, which took over from Shaw Brothers as Hong Kong’s leading film studio in the late 1970s and all through the 1990s, and which introduced the talents of Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Sammo Hung to the wider international audience, revolutionizing action cinema in the process.
Program will include Pedicab Driver (1989), The Man from Hong Kong (1975), Rumble in the Bronx (1995), Enter the Dragon (1973), The Prodigal Son (1981), The Terra-Cotta Warrior (1990), The Blade (1995), and Big Bullet (1996). Most titles will be presented on rare, archival 35mm film.
