The creators of SHAOLIN JAZZ are happy to announce that they will be a part of the Smithsonian’s Year of Music programming. On Thursday, Dce. 5th they will be bringing their CAN I KICK IT? series back to the Freer Gallery of Art for a special screening of the bloody historical epic, 13 Assassins.
13 Assassins was directed by the notorious Takashi Miike (Audition, Ichi the Killer). In this remake of a 1963 film based on actual historical events, thirteen of the best samurai in Japan are recruited to take down a ruthless warlord who is oppressing his people. After they set a trap in a small village for the warlord’s army of bodyguards, mayhem ensues!
*This film is rated-R and contains very graphic content. Not suitable for children.
About CAN I KICK IT?
Can I Kick It? is an exciting and innovative film experience produced by Shaolin Jazz. DJ 2-Tone Jones creates a live score to classic martial arts (and action) movies using his turntables. He spins a curated mix of hip-hop, soul, rock, and more, scene by scene. The result is a redefined movie experience, as 2-Tone creates a remixed movie soundtrack using music and special DJ techniques to complement and accentuate the dialogue and storyline.
