Full film details

1965, San Francisco. A young Bruce Lee (Philip Ng) is working as a martial arts instructor at the kung fun academy he owns. He cares for his students enormously and works hard to defend them against the gangs of Chinatown.

When news hits that legendary Shaolin monk and kung fu master Wong Jack Man (Xia Yu) is in town, Lee becomes concerned that he may come under scrutiny for teaching kung fu to white people. Lee strongly believes that kung fu should be practised by anyone, and Man is the one person who could destroy everything he’s been working so hard to build.

While performing at the Long Beach International Karate Championships, Lee spots Man in the audience and later challenges him to a fight. Little do they know that their controversial showdown will change the face of martial arts forever.

Birth of the Dragon gives a fictionalised account of Bruce Lee’s rise to fame in San Francisco. This remarkable story is produced and directed by George Nolfi and scripted by Christopher Wilson and Stephen J. Rivele. Philip Ng stars as Bruce Lee (New Police Story), alongside Yu Xia (The Painted Veil) as Wong Jack Man.
