In a new special screening season, Monash University’s Film and Screen Studies presents The Grandmaster by Wong Kar-Wai.
The Grandmaster is Wong’s latest film, a highly stylised and narratively sophisticated recent return to form, following the unfair and universal panning of his previous “American” feature Blueberry Nights (2007) Wong’s film is a biopic of Ip Man, the founder of wing chun kung fu and mentor to Bruce Lee.
Monash Film and Screen Studies Associate Professor Deane Williams will provide a scholarly introduction to the film.
The Grandmaster will be shown in B6.31 from 4pm to 6.30pm on Wednesday, May 7.
