Enter the Dragon 龍爭虎鬥
February 15, 2024
Production: USA/HK 1973 Director: Robert Clouse

As a martial arts master, Lee is tasked by the police to infiltrate a large martial arts tournament organized by the shady millionaire and super-villain Han on his private island. Lee’s mission is to uncover Han’s criminal activities in drug trafficking and prostitution while seeking revenge for the death of his sister caused by Han’s machinations.
Widely regarded as one of the best martial arts films of all time, this is the fourth and final film by Bruce Lee. Released three weeks after the exceptional artist’s death in 1973, it ignited a global Kung-Fu boom. The centerpiece of this first Hollywood-Hong Kong action co-production is perfectly choreographed and captivating fight scenes that continue to set standards for martial arts films. From the first to the last battle, the exceptional artist Lee reveals his impressive dynamism and striking power. The martial arts tournament and duels present a variety of visual highlights, consisting of captivating sequences showcasing various Eastern martial arts techniques masterfully demonstrated. Bruce Lee, whether with his feet, hands, sticks, or the iconic nunchaku, is simply unbeatable. A rare opportunity to experience the “King of Kung Fu” on the big screen in Göttingen!
After the film, there will be an opportunity for a discussion with Katja Pessl from the Centre for Modern East Asian Studies and Martin Minarik from the Institute of Sports Sciences.
