Angela Mao in person to introduce and for a Q&A before the 7pm screening.
A watershed in Mao’s filmography, Hapkido is a thrilling paean to the Korean fighting style that the lifelong martial arts disciple and superstar studied in real life. Angela and compatriots Sammo Hung and Carter Wong star as Chinese students of the titular Korean martial art who find themselves forced by the scenery-chewing imperialist Japanese baddies into defending honor and righteousness with dazzling hand-to-hand combat. Don’t blink!
The print of Hapkido we are showing is dubbed in English.
