When Bruce Lee died in 1974 at the peak of his superstardom, he had completed only four feature films. But within hours of his funeral, Hong Kong movie studios began to produce hundreds of unauthorized biopics, sequels, prequels, spin-offs, and rip-offs starring a competing series of Lee lookalikes. Over the next decade, fueled by both deception and demand, “Bruceploitation” would become a staple of global cinema.

Director David GREGORY examines this uniquely ‘70s phenomenon via interviews with impersonators, martial arts movie legends, and the creators of these films, revealing the history, controversy and legacy behind one of the most bizarre and successful genres in movie history.





David GREGORY is a producer and director who previously explored film’s transgressive edges in his award-winning documentaries Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau and Blood & Flesh: The Reel Life & Ghastly Death of Al Adamson.
