Shown as part of our tenth year of Cinema East. Police Story, Jackie Chan’s fifth film as director, brought him the wider international audience he had long been seeking and was one of the key films in the Hong Kong renaissance that took art house theaters by storm in the late 1980s. Featuring some of the most astonishing sequences in the history of action cinema, Police Story and its sequel cemented Chan’s persona as the master of kung fu comedy who put his body on the line in order to entertain his fans. Join us for this special double feature presentation! "Immersing yourself in a foreign film is like crawling through a window into that culture. It’s an exercise in empathy, a chance to see through the eyes of artists half a world away." -- WhatcomTalk on Cinema East.
