Director Brian Trenchard-Smith interviewed by Martha Ansara.

In this clip, Brian describes making the groundbreaking but highly fraught co-production The Man from Hong Kong (Australia-Hong Kong, 1975) and nearly coming to blows on set with leading man and martial arts star, Jimmy Wang Yu (1943–2022).

Brian, a cult film director counting Quentin Tarantino among his biggest fans, has made numerous idiosyncratic feature films across 5 decades, including Turkey Shoot (1982), BMX Bandits (1983), and Dead End Drive-In (1986).
