The Fate of Lee Khan is renowned Chinese filmmaker King Hu’s 1973 follow-up to his 1971 action-adventure epic A Touch of Zen.

When Lee Khan, an official working for Mongolian Emperor Yuan of the Yuan Dynasty procures the battle map of the Chinese rebel army, Chinese resistance fighters, aided by an undercover girl-gang, strive to corner him at an inn.

Specializing in high-flying, sword-swinging “wuxia” films, Hu’s film features stunning action sequences choreographed by the great Sammo Hung, along with a generous dollop of intrigue and humor. Lee Khan also brings together an all-star female cast, including Hong Kong cinema stalwart Li Li-hua and ingénue Angela “Lady Whirlwind” Mao.

Featuring a new 2K digital restoration, the Blu-ray an DVD incarnations of the film include the following bonus features:

  • New York Asian Film Festival Chat: The Fate of King Hu video discussion
  • New essay by Chinese-language film expert and author Stephen Teo
