This year, at a screening of Disciples of the 36th chamber, Fantasia had a special guest to present the film. Enthusiastic fans greeted Gordon Liu with standing ovations before and after the film. This was Gordon's first visit to Fantasia to present us one of his films. For the first time in twenty years, Disciples of the 36th Chamber was viewed on a big screen in North America and martial arts fans were treated to a complete and restored version.

Fans were also privileged to a special Q & A session after the film with an extra treat: Gordon Liu gave a Kung Fu demonstration to eager fans. Fantasia presented Gordon with a painted portrait, by Jean-Pierre Normand in honor of his being at the festival.
Gordon Liu will be at Metro Video this Sunday at 2:00 PM and on July 9th at the Cinémathèque Québécoise.
