Declared “an intensely amazing event” (Badass Digest) and a “kick-ass fest” (Time Out New York), this year’s OSKFF will focus on the output of Golden Harvest, which took over from Shaw Brothers as Hong Kong’s leading film studio in the late 1970s and all through the 1990s, and which introduced the talents of Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Sammo Hung to the wider international audience, revolutionizing action cinema in the process. Program will include rare 35mm prints of Pedicab Driver (1989), The Man from Hong Kong (1975), Rumble in the Bronx (1995), and more.The hype has been building for a few weeks now but tickets are on sale while they last.
