Nitehawk tells the Legend of the 1993 Kung Fu film IRON MONKEY. A 35mm presentation! Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
In a desperate and unjust land, where government corruption rules the day, only one man has the courage to challenge the system and fight back. They call him “Iron Monkey.” Under the shadow of night, in the silence before dawn, he fights to give hope to the poor and the oppressed. Although no one knows his name and no one knows where he comes from, his heroism has made him a living legend to the people and a wanted man to the powers that be.
