Wuxia is a Chinese literary genre that inspired filmmakers to produce wuxia cinema. In creations of this kind, the action usually takes place among the upper classes. The duels are dominated by fighting with melee weapons, and the whole thing is complemented by fantasy elements (flying, superhuman abilities of warriors). The heroes perfectly know wushu – Chinese martial arts. All thanks to training under the watchful eye of the masters. Some of the more well-known wuxia movie offerings are: Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and hero.
The short focuses on a fantastic duel between two warriors. In the depths of the bamboo forest, amazing fight scenes with special effects take place.
