Sundance Film Festival has announced its lineup of movies for their 2020 festival, one of which includes a Brand New Documentary about Bruce Lee titled Be Water.

 

At first glance I thought the post over at CityOnFire.Com was about the recent Chow Yu-Fat movie of the same name. The over commericialized quote wasnt the work of Bruce Lee, but writer Stirling Silliphant, which the Bruce Lee Estate has conveintly forgotten about.Thanks to the top team over at CityonFire.Com for posting this news. Please click on the link below for the full story from them.

  Be Water, My Friend is an upcoming Hong Kong domestic drama film directed by Anthony Pun and starring Chow Yun-fat as a pathological gambler who searches a way to communicate and connect with his autistic son. The film's English title is based on Bruce Lee's famous quote on martial arts philosophy.[2] Production for the film began in January 2019 and wrapped up in late March of the same year.[3]

Be Water / U.S.A., United Kingdom (Director: Bao Nguyen, Producer: Julia Nottingham) — In 1971, after being rejected by Hollywood, Bruce Lee returned to his parents’ homeland of Hong Kong to complete four iconic films. Charting his struggles between two worlds, this portrait explores questions of identity and representation through the use of rare archival, interviews with loved ones and Bruce’s own writings.

I still think we are yet to see the best Bruce Lee documentary,this maybe worth watching but if they tell Bruce’s story using the same footage that we’ve all seen before then I don’t see the point,but I will still check it out when it becomes available.

Hi @sym8.

 

I'm not holding my breath for anything new, but they should have one hell of a budget if the ltest law-suit goes through?. Lets say if someone revealed the most rare/in demand Bruce Lee footage, pictures or writing out there. It would never come close to making this kind of money. It's no mystery why so much rare Bruce Lee mateiral is just circulating between rich collector's. That said, if it wasnt for some of these collectors. There just wouldnt be much out there now, full stop.

 

$41 Million Lawsuit.

I wonder if the Bruce Lee estate has any footage we/us fans haven’t already seen?

Jesse Glover when he was alive also told me and a group of other people that Linda is sitting on a tonne of footage of Bruce training and teaching and that she has absolutely no interest in sharing or selling it. - @fabhui

Yet they do seem interested in selling a desk top Bruce Lee bobble head for $20.Maybe one day they will use the footage they have in the best Bruce Lee documentary that has yet to be made.
