Part 11: Innovation in Popular Culture Around the World 2011

70 mins United Kingdom Director. Mark Cousins

Star Wars, Jaws and The Exorcist created the multiplexes, but as Mark Cousins shows, they were also innovative. Amitabh Bachchan, the world's most popular film star, shares how Bollywood was doing new things in the '70s. And we discover that Bruce Lee movies in Hong Kong kickstarted the kinetic films of Hong Kong, where Master Yuen Wo Ping talks about his choreography for The Matrix.
