Synopsis

Hong Kong stuntmen discuss the foundation of their profession, which has been laid by Chinese opera company alums as demand for their skills increased with the popularity of martial arts movies. The skills required of stuntmn are also demonstrated in a short film-in-the-making within the film called "Lost Time," in which the filmmaker appears as a martial artist who must defeat a group of assassins, "legends of the forest." Unfolding in fragmented form throughout the documentary, "Lost Time" is intercut with footage that shows how the stunts were accomplished.
