Ever watched a kung fu flick and then really wanted to get some insight on those killer moves right afterwards? You’ve got a chance this weekend at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens. Yuen Woo-Ping, the martial arts choreographer behind the physicality of The Matrix and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, will be on hand for a screening of his film from last year. Basic kung fu principles abide — a retired warrior embarks on a peaceful existence until a presence from his past returns and reintroduces violence into his life. The two men then head towards a showdown using two very different forms of kung fu: the Five Venom Fists and the Drunken Fist. After the film, Yuen will explain how kung fu relates to breakdancing. Don't be surprised if most of the Wu-Tang Clan shows up.
Admission is free once you pay to get into the museum, which is pretty amazing in its own right.
