About Restart Stages at Lincoln Center: New Dragon Gate Inn

Co-presented by New York Asian Film Festival and Film at Lincoln Center Two of Hong Kong’s greatest actresses of all time, Maggie Cheung and Brigitte Lin (who famously took an arrow in the eye during the shoot) play bad-ass swordswomen who attempt to thwart Ming Dynasty eunuch Tsao (played by Donnie Yen in full supervillain form) as he masterminds a plot to take over the Empire. One of the first Hong Kong films to be shot in China, Tsui Hark’s swordplay extravaganza is the gold standard of 1990s wuxia: a madcap blend of female-powered gravity-defying acrobatics mixed with spaghetti western tropes: it’s no surprise that both Maggie Cheung and Brigitte Lin have since retired from the big screen. Because really, how do you top a movie like this? A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to catch this masterpiece of popular Asian cinema on the BIG screen.
