BE WATER

de Bao Nguyen

Trailer

Synopsis

In 1971, two years before his death, Bruce Lee returned to Hong Kong with the intention of obtaining the fame he had been denied in the United States. During this time, he made four films and later went on to become a legend. Through stock footage and the testimony of relatives and friends, Be Water portrays Lee from a highly contemporary perspective, exploring the racism inherent both in society and the film industry.
