On June 22 2002, Hong Kong cinema lost one of its most prolific and highly influential figures when director Chang Cheh passed away at the age of 79. Chang directed more than 90 movies during the course of his career, including such classics as One- Armed Swordsman, Golden Swallow, Chinatown Kid, The Five Venoms, and so many more.

Chang was born in Mainland China in 1923, and received his education at Chungking University before he first became involved in the film industry in 1947, when he wrote the script for a Shanghainese movie, The False Faced Woman.

In the years that followed, Chang would direct some of the greatest martial arts movies ever made including the cult classics as Na Cha The Great, Men From The Monastery, Crippled Avengers, Ten Tigers Of Kwang Tung and many more.

Shortly before his death, Chang received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2002 Hong Kong Film Awards. He will be remembered as the “Godfather” of Hong Kong Action Cinema.
