“He put balls on Chinese men is just one of the pithy observations offered about Bruce Lee in this comprehensive appreciation of the martial arts icon. Longtime fans may think they already know all they need to know about the charismatic star, with numerous documentaries and an entertaining biopic (1993's Dragon: the Bruce Lee Story) released since his death in 1973. And it's true that the usual rags-to-riches chronology is covered here. However, thanks to rarely seen archive footage (including Lee teaching superstar pupil James Coburn in his back garden) dovetailed with judicious footage from TV interviews and his unforgettable film performances, this still manages to be fresh and revealing”

“Two kinds of people should not miss this film about the most famous martial arts actor and practitioner of modern times: those who worship Bruce Lee and those who don't.”

Featuring a host of rare footage and photographs, this compelling and visually thrilling documentary examines the fascinating life, continuing influence and lasting legacy of one of the most iconic actors and martial artists of all time – the legendary Bruce Lee.

Produced by Network Entertainment, the team behind 2010's Academy Award short listed documentary Facing Ali and directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Pete McCormack (Facing Ali; Uganda Rising; See Grace Fly) and featuring interviews with Linda Lee Cadwell (Bruce Lee’s wife), Shannon Lee (Bruce’s daughter), JKD instructor and close friend of Bruce, Dan Inosanto (Game Of Death), world champion kickboxer Bob Wall (Way Of The Dragon; Enter The Dragon; Game Of Death), Richard Bustillo (a former JKD student of Bruce Lee’), actors Mickey Rourke (The Expendables; Iron Man 2; The Wrestler) and Ed O’Neill (Modern Family), NBA All Star Kobe Bryant, Taboo from Black Eyed Peas, actress and MMA fighter Gina Carano (Haywire), legendary stuntman and former wrestling and judo world champion Gene LeBell and UFC World Champion Jon Jones.

Despite his tragic and sudden death on 20th July 1973 at the age of 32, Bruce Lee’s enormous influence on martial arts, entertainment and popular culture lives on to this day. Utilizing rare archive footage, photos, movie clips and brand new interviews with members of his close family, as well as with numerous stars from the worlds of sport, music and acting who have been inspired by Lee’s legacy, I Am Bruce Lee goes more deeply into the true story behind the legend than any ever before. The film also examines Bruce’s connections to the establishment of Mixed Martial Arts as we know them today, acknowledging that if Gene LeBell is considered the Godfather of MMA then Bruce is without doubt the modern-day Father of MMA.

The brand new interviews, particularly with Bruce’s wife and daughter, along with tons of amazing archive footage - including previously unseen footage of Bruce, rare footage from “Enter The Dragon” and equally rare photos – make this a must-see for everybody from Mixed Martial Arts and Bruce Lee fans to anyone with an interest in popular culture and the cult of celebrity.

Of particular interest to Bruce Lee fans will undoubtedly be the inclusion of clips from Bruce’s rarely seen appearance in the TV series “Here Come The Brides”, previously unreleased (and believed to be lost) colour footage of Bruce at Ed Parker’s Long Beach Karate Tournament, extensive footage of Bruce training and tutoring James Coburn in the backyard of his Los Angeles home (including Chi Sao training in Wing Chun that have never been seen before) and the first official release of Bruce in Seattle practising Chi Sao.
