About The Movie
“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. 36chambers fortunately was able 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.
Special thanks to both The Hollywood Theatre and Alamo Drafthouse. Bringing this film to 36 Cinema would not have been possible without their help.
We look forward to you joining us for this first-of-its-kind experience this Friday
