At risk of being captured and executed, Yang (Hsu Feng), a noblewoman and fugitive hiding in a small village, must escape into the wilderness with a shy scholar and two aides. There, the quartet face a massive group of fighters and are joined by a band of Buddhist monks surprisingly skilled in the art of battle. King Hu’s grandest work, A Touch of Zen is at once a martial arts film, a spiritual quest, and a study in human nature, taking Hu’s cinematic innovations to a breathtaking level. Janus Films is proud to present the original uncut version of this classic in a new 4K digital restoration. A TOUCH OF ZEN opens Friday, April 22 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center with national rollout to follow.
