The 36th Chamber of Shaolin

The recent death of martial arts legend Lau Kar-leung (aka Liu Chia-liang) warrants a tribute screening of this essential kung-fu film directed by Liu himself. Starring the filmmaker’s frequent collaborator (and pupil) Lau Chia-hui (aka Gordon Liu), the story involves a student at the Shaolin monastery who undertakes grueling martial arts training in order to wreak vengeance on the marauders who occupied his village. With astonishing fight choreography by director Lau, the film has influenced legions of artists including the Wu-Tang Clan and Quentin Tarantino and was selected by Black Belt magazine as the third-best martial arts film of all time.

Written by Ni Kuang. Cinematography by Arthur Wong. With Gordon Liu, Lieh Lo, Yang Yu, Wang Yu. (119 min. In Mandarin and Cantonese with subtitles, Celestial Pictures).

$12 SFFS members, $13 senior (62+)/student/disabled, $14 general, $10 children (12 and under)
