Episode 91: The Conjectural Bruce Lee with Dr. Brian Hu

This week Jonathan sits down with San Diego State University’s Dr. Brian Hu about his article, “Bruce Lee” after Bruce Lee: A Life in Conjectures. Then in the second half of the interview Jonathan asks Brian’s opinion about a question Jonathan has been toying with: Will the powers that be, attempt to mold late actor Chadwick Boseman’s (1976-2020) legacy and image in much the same way film studios’ attempted to do so with Bruce Lee (1940-1973)?

Also, be sure to check out Dr. Hu’s book Worldly Desires: Cosmopolitanism and Cinema in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Also, Brian is the Artistic Director of the San Diego Asian Film Festival. This year’s festival runs October 28 through November 6, 2021 – so be sure to check out their great programming. Also, here is Brian’s faculty page at SDSU.

Then be sure to check back in with us in two weeks for another brand-new episode.
