You see the signature haircut with thick sideburns and eyebrow-grazing fringe, the severe jaw line, the glinting eyes warm with intensity and focus, the superhuman definition of every muscle visible in a thin white tank top.

More than a fan, Abbas Alizada hopes to use Lee’s legacy to bring attention to the strength and grace of the people of Afghanistan, the home that Alizada loves so much. The Jet Li team fell in love with Kabul through the lense of the camera and the perspective of this truly special person. Enjoy the behind-the-scenes look at:
