The Hong Kong government teamed up with the Bruce Lee Foundation to put together an exhibition to showcase the late star’s life from his famous yellow tracksuit he wore in the movie Game of Death, to his writings and drawings.

Bruce Lee: Kung Fu. Art. Life opened on Saturday and has more than 600 items on display, including photos, costumes, videos and even a 3.5 metre statue.

Shannon, who was four when her father died, hopes the display will “help show a more complete picture” by showing Lee’s family side and the hard work he put into making his movies.

The government film archive is also producing documentaries of his life and new prints of some of Lee’s films.
