Prior to the death of the legendary Bruce Lee, he helped to create a movie story that might capture not only the spirit of martial arts but a part of the zen philosophy by which he lived by. He was aware that a film with these dynamics would cause controversy, particularly among those unfamiliar with zen beliefs, but it was this very uniqueness that he believed would enthrall the movie goer. Bruce set the story of The Silent Flute in a land that never was–and always is. It is to Bruce Lee that this film is posthumously dedicated.
“A young martial artist embarks on an adventure, encountering other martial artists in battle until one day he meets an aging blind man who will show him the true meaning of martial arts and life.”
