Wu Xia

Wu Xia

An engagement with the Hong Kong trilogy THE SWORDSMAN from the early 90s, which was extremely popular in Asia. A special characteristic of the series is the permanent background music. The three films were shortened by the removal of all the scenes with background music and dialog. The entire film length was thus cut down from 325 min. to four minutes. A reduction of the narrative just through image.

Dawid Liftinger, geboren 1986 in Gmunden. // Filme (Auswahl): BEHÖRDENGANG (2012; CE ’14), WU XIA (2014)
