The iconic and masterful Bruce Lee brought martial arts to the masses and broke through the stereotypical portrayal of Asians in American film before his untimely death at the age of 32. Coming off its powerhouse premiere on HISTORY™, A&E Home Entertainment presents HOW BRUCE LEE CHANGED THE WORLD, a raw, behind-the-scenes look into the fascinating, yet abbreviated, life of the legendary film and martial arts superstar. On August 25, film and martial arts fans will have the opportunity to discover the real Bruce Lee with this intimate feature-length documentary packed with rare home movies and insightful interviews, plus a collectible Bruce Lee poster.
Produced in cooperation with Lee’s family, HOW BRUCE LEE CHANGED THE WORLD takes a novel and informative approach into how the actor and martial arts legacy has shaped and influenced the world since his death in 1973. The special takes the viewer across the United States, Asia and Europe exploring Lee’s influence on popular culture worldwide — even joining daughter Shannon Lee on a trip back to her father’s roots in Hong Kong nearly fifty years after Lee arrived to make his first kung fu film. This cinematic journey pieces together rare family archival footage owned by the Bruce Lee Foundation, together with in-depth interviews with those inspired by Lee, including: actor Jackie Chan, comedian Eddie Griffin, rappers LL Cool J and RZA, Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee, renowned film directors John Woo and Brett Ratner, comedian Margret Cho, actor/martial arts expert Donny Yen, former World Champion Boxer Sugar Ray Leonard and award-winning filmmakers Quentin Tarantino and Ang Lee, among others. Lee’s friend and business partner, famed Hong Kong film producer Raymond Chow, also gives a rare interview.
