290 Harvard Street
Brookline, MA 02446
RZA, acclaimed rapper, producer, and director, provides a live commentary to the 1983 Gordon Liu martial arts classic that inspired the name Wu-Tang Clan.
Along with head programmer at the Hollywood Theatre and past Coolidge After Midnite guest Dan Halsted, RZA will discuss Shaolin vs. Wu Tang and its place in the martial arts canon. Viewers will also be able to ask the moderators questions during the screening.
Starring and directed by Shaw Brothers superstar Gordon Liu, with fight choreography by the great Lau Kar Leung, this is old school kung fu at its best, filled with excellent fight scenes, strange training sequences, martial arts weaponry, and an opening credit sequence that alone is worth the price of admission.
