New York’s Museum of the Moving Image’s ongoing “Fist and Sword” series presented a talk titled “Ip Man (also known as Yip Man) Fact & Fiction: Creating the Legend of Bruce Lee’s Teacher” on July 8.

The event, sponsored by Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, New York, featured U.S. Wing Tsun teacher Alex Richter, who discussed the lead-up to his feature-length documentary on Yip Man — the famed Wing Tsun Kung Fu master and teacher of Bruce Lee.

Mr. Richter’s passion for Wing Tsun led him to Hong Kong, where he interviewed students of Yip Man. The presentation featured film clips, photos and behind-the-scenes stories as well as a teaser preview of Mr. Richter’s documentary project “The Real Yip Man.” 

The next event in the “Fist and Sword” series is a screening of Hong Kong filmmaker Pou-Soi Cheang’s martial arts movie “Kill Zone 2” (2015) on August 5.
