I’m sure most of us who grew up with Chinese films and dramas would know the story of Xuan Zang, mostly from the various adaptations of Journey to the West. Xuan Zang is a Chinese-Indian film following the seventeen-year journey of Xuan Zang as he gathered and translated many Indian Buddhist texts to Chinese during the Tang Dynasty. Playing the titular role is Huang Xiao Ming and joining him, friends and foes, are Luo Jin, Kent Tong, and Purba Rgyal.
