Deaf Mute Heroine (adv. 15)

Delve deep into the obscure and forgotten films of the martial arts genre with this rare, late-night screening of Wu Ma’s directorial work.

Starring Helen Ma as a deaf and mute bounty hunter with some seriously impressive sword skills, this is an action-packed, fast-paced film featuring thrilling fights scenes and arguably one of the best female battles of the genre. Deaf Mute Heroine is known for having a somewhat threadbare backstory—but who needs it when the action is this exhilarating?


This screening will be introduced by Mark Goodall, Senior Film Lecturer at the University of Bradford.
