SHAOLIN VS WU TANG (W/ Commentary by RZA)
May 8 @ 9:15 pm - 11:30 pm
SHAOLIN VS WU TANG (W/ Commentary by RZA of the Wu Tang Clan)
View at home and Support the Cinema Arts Centre! One Night Only!
“Shaolin vs Wu Tang” (sometimes referred to as Shaolin and Wu Tang) is a 1983 martial arts film directed by and starring Gordon Liu. Not only is the intro from Wu-Tang Clan’s track “Bring Da Ruckus” sampled from this movie, but RZA pulled the name Wu-Tang Clan from this movie!
Even though this movie has had a great impact on hip hop culture, very few people have seen it. We’re fortunate to link with Halsted on this project; he has what is believed to be the only 35mm print of “Shaolin vs Wu Tang” in North America. The digital viewing is a pristine transfer of this 35mm print.
