Through the director Lin’s exploration, the documentary presents the unique charisma of film maker King Hu’s works and his creative pathway in solitude. The documentary is composed of two parts.
This second episode talks about how Hu’s fate – his wandering life without a place to anchor, from Beijing, Taiwan, Hong Kong, to the US – reflects on his films. Especially in his later years while he was still trying to make films but could not succeed, his life was not as glorious as we assumed. He was once a maker of a new era, but also a lonesome hero caught between different times.
