THE MONKEY KING: UPROAR IN HEAVEN was made between 1961 and 1964 by the legendary Wan brothers. The film, based on the early chapters of the 16th century classic Chinese Novel “Journey to the West”, is a delightfully choreographed and beautifully laid out film, rich and vibrant in both color and action. Directed by Wan Laiming, this animation was created by hand from around 130.000 ink drawings. In their restoration, Da Su and Chen Zhihong have maintained the spirit of the original, much of it having been restored by adding further handdrawn images. (Berlinale)
