Malaysia’s first Kung Fu movie – Kinta 1881.

February 1, 2009

Directed by C.L. Hor, KINTA 1881 is set in the late 19th century and centers on a tin rush in Malaysia’s Kinta Valley where Chinese immigrants poured in to seek their fortunes. A tin mine becomes a central backdrop for much of the film’s kinetic screen fighting.

This is the first release for Absolutely Black, a production company formed from Hor’s Blackbox Pictures and event management company CMG Absolute.

What should interest genre fans is that the stars are all real martial artists. Robin Ho is a former world wushu champion. Michael Chin, Kuan Fei and Shawn Lee are all national Malaysian wushu artists and David Bao is a world champion tai chi performer from China.
