Red Heroine

Hongxia

Directed by Wen Yimin
China, 1929
Action, Silent

Synopsis

The Burning of the Red Lotus Temple in 1928 set off a formidable wave of Chinese wu xia, from which Red Heroine is a rare surviving film. The fluid storytelling and special effects – think cloud-surfing and disappearance by white smoke – are a pure treat.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
