Bruce Lee & the Outlaw
Documentary

Bruce Lee & the Outlaw, a documentary by Joost Vandebrug in co-production with GrainMedia.

Nicu, a young homeless boy, is adopted by Bruce Lee, the notorious “King of the Underworld” and goes to live with him in the tunnels underneath Bucharest.
As Nicu grows up, he starts to realise that perhaps the King of the Underworld is not the perfect father, and has to make a choice between staying in Bruce’s gang, or living a ‘normal’ life above ground.

“For anybody who’s ever binged on Louis Theroux’s cultish docs or found real-world purpose in Ken Loach’s stories (..), Bruce Lee and the Outlaw promises to deliver an equally powerful emotional punch.” – i-D

“A story everyone should hear, powerfully executed and visually flawless.” – Digital Fix

World premiere: Sheffield Doc|Fest 2018
