8 Diagram Pole Fighter + mystery Shaw Bros. film!

If there’s a real “fan favorite” Shaw Brothers movie, it would have to be this kinetic later-period masterpiece, packed with some of the studio’s 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 smack downs (including the dazzling titular pole fighting) that will leave you in cinematic traction. Don’t miss the chance to gather up your friends for a martial arts party movie that will obliterate you — even the opening credits sequence manages to smack you across the head! The evening’s secret second Shaw Brothers feature will also be on 35mm!
8 Diagram Pole Fighter Dir. Lau Kar-Leung, 1983, 35mm, 98 min.
