Ip Man is a 2008 Kung Fu biopic about the eponymous grandmaster of Wing Chung, played by Donnie Yen.  Fight choreography by Sammo Hung makes this film set during the Sino-Japanese war a balletic blast of duty and honour.

Sean Niu is the host of The Electric Image Express, a podcast exploring Asian-American identify through film and TV. 

The two collide in this episode to create a far-ranging discussion. Luke and Hamza (@instahamz) join the melee and  dig into the discussion about the the changing face of diversity in US and UK media, what kind of kung fu films hit the right spot, and what the movies are really selling.
