July 10 |One-Armed Swordsman

Director: Chan Cheh

1967 | 117 minutes | MPAA rated R

A noble swordsman, whose arm had been chopped off, returns to his former teacher to defend him from a villainous gang of rival swordsmen. Directed by Chang Cheh, it was the first of the new style of wuxia films emphasizing male anti-heroes, violent swordplay and heavy bloodletting. It was the first Hong Kong film to make over one million at the local box office, propelling its star Jimmy Wang to superstardom. The success of this film also spawned two sequels, comprising the One-Armed Swordsman trilogy.

July 17 | A Touch of Zen

Director: King Hu

1971 | 180 minutes | MPAA, not rated

“Visionary” barely begins to describe this masterpiece of Chinese martial arts moviemaking. A Touch of Zen (Xia nu) by King Hu depicts the journey of Yang, a fugitive noblewoman in disguise who seeks refuge in a remote, and allegedly haunted, village. The sanctuary she and her three companions find with a shy scholar is shattered when a nefarious swordsman uncovers her identity, pitting the five against legions of blade-wielding opponents. At once a wuxia film, the tale of a spiritual quest, and a study in human nature, A Touch of Zen is an unparalleled work in Hu’s career and an epic of the highest order, with breathtaking action choreography, stunning widescreen landscapes, and innovative editing.

July 24 | Project A

Director: Jackie Chan

1983 | 106 minutes | MPAA rated PG-13 for violence

Dragon Ma (Jackie Chan) is a lieutenant in the 19th-century Hong Kong marines. Pirates have been terrorizing local waters, with assistance from the corrupt authorities. Dragon Ma hopes to defeat the evil pirate clan led by Sanpao (Dick Wei), but his plan is short-circuited. Ma then teams with a navy admiral (Hak Suen Lau), a police captain Tzu (Biao Yuen) and a crafty thief (Sammo Hung Kam-Bo) in a new round of high-seas battles with Sanpao and his pirates.
