Spoiler warnings ahead, we discuss Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan, a class Chor Yuen film.
I talk with Joel about Duel to the Death. We also discuss Eight Diagram Pole Fighter and begin a conversation about XP and learning techniques, which we will continue in the next podcast.
On this episode of Wuxia Weekend we talk about the 1993 film, Butterfly and Sword. Based on the same source material as the classic, Killer Clans, it is directed by Michael Mak, and stars Michelle Yeoh, Tony Leung, Joey Wong and Donnie Yen.
I interview Yilin Wang, a writer, translator and editor about her story Sparrow, her upcoming novel and travel writing, as well as wuxia and translations of wuxia fiction. We cover a lot, including discussion of Gu Long's unique style and what aspects of it may be lost in translation. You can learn more about Yilin at here website (HERE) or follow her on Twitter @yilinwriter
