Spiritual Kung Fu will screen from a 2K digital restoration.
An early starring role for Jackie Chan – who also acted as stunt coordinator for the film – Spiritual Kung Fu follows Yi-Lang (Chan), a young martial arts student at a Shaolin temple. After an important text is stolen from the temple’s library, Yi-Lang trains under a group of unruly ghosts who teach him the lost Five Style Fists fighting techniques so that he can seek justice. Released in the wake of Chan’s breakthrough films Snake in the Eagle's Shadow 1978 and Drunken Master 1978, Lo Wei’s Spiritual Kung Fu is a boisterous action-comedy showcase for the skills that would make its star a legend of martial arts cinema.
