Free Screening of King Hu’s Raining in the Mountain (1979)

Catch a free, online screening of King Hu’s classic wuxia film, Raining in the Mountain, via the University of Wisconsin Cinematheque! Then listen to a conversation about the film with film critic David Bordwell on their new Cinematalk podcast available here. “In a Ming Dynasty monastery, competing bands of thieves, corrupt monks, and martial artists converge as the temple’s abbot, charged with protecting a sacred scroll, prepares to name his successor. Hu’s aesthetic and technical powers are in full effect in this nimble battle of wits, brought to life through his characteristic finely tuned choreography and balletic action sequences.”
