Treasures from the Yale Film Archive: CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON

June 23, 2023

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Ang Lee, 2000, 120 mins)
Lee’s sumptuous wuxia epic broke records at the Oscars and the box office, taking audiences to a near-mythic China where bandits and warriors seek a fabled stolen sword. Michelle Yeoh, Chow Yun-fat, Zhang Ziyi, and Chang Chen star in what’s been called “soaring and romantic, wild and serene, feminist and gutsy” (Lisa Schwarzbaum). In Mandarin with English subtitles. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

7 p.m. Thursday, July 20
