Film Masters Release The Controversial Kung Fu Classic, THE CRIPPLED MASTERS, This July

Why the controversy? The Crippled Masters stars Frankie Shum (Shun Chung-Chuen) and Jack Conn (Thomas Hong Chiu-Ming), two disabled martial artists as the titular “masters” and focuses heavily on their impairments. Whether the film celebrates inclusivity or not is purely up to the viewer, but it’s safe to assume that the film was made to cash in on the exploitation cinema of the 70’s and early 80’s.
