You must think first, before you move!” This edition WYSIWYG enters the 36 Chambers by highlighting the relationship between Hong Kong kung fu cinema from the ’70s and the origins of the Wu-Tang Clan. How is the American hip-hop collective inspired through images, sound and methods from these early martial arts films?
