Art of Action UK-Wide season

This UK-wide season offers an action-packed journey through cinema from the jaw dropping stunts of silent cinema pioneers via the daredevil ethos of Hong Kong filmmaking to today’s intricate dynamic visual choreography. Art of Action will explore the cinematic artistry, skill and craft involved in creating iconic sequences and films as well as engage with the historic roots and cross-cultural influences of action cinema.
