THE SHAW BROTHERS’ KUNG FU STYLE

February at the Trylon

The Shaw Brothers’ Kung fu style, when properly used, is almost invincible. Shaolin, Wu-Tang, pole-fighting, and Mad Monkey—all became famous in the 1970s and 1980s thanks to Run Run and Runme Shaw. The Trylon is proud to present four very rare 35mm prints of these classics, courtesy of film collector Dan Halsted. Promotional support is provided by Asian Media Access.
