Film Screening at the NLA: Drunken Master

nlaevents 14 January 2016

Contemporary chop-socky fans will know the historical hero Wong Fei Hung (1847-1924) through Jet Li’s sober, prouder performances in Once Upon A Time in China series.

By contrast, in the 1978 classic and first of two Drunken Master movies, Jackie Chan gives the master a zany spin – playing him as a lazy buffoon who is trained in the Drunken Style Fist Kung Fu by a foul-mouthed, sadistic derelict, in order to stop an assassin. The movie made Chan a star, and has since become one of Chan’s biggest hits ever.

Starring Jackie Chan.
