The soundtrack will be performed in real time and created by blending eclectic sound bytes (including pieces from Eddie Murphys Raw), musical samples, and dialogue and sound effects from the film. Prodigal Son, written and directed by Sammo Hung, follows the exploits of a young street fighter, played by Yuen Biao, under the tutelage of two very different masters. Tickets, which are discounted for museum members, can be purchased in advance by calling 718-784-4520.
This event is part of the series Fist and Sword: Martial-Arts Film Classics, curated by Warrington Hudlin, a museum trustee and a founder of the Black Filmmaker Foundation and DVRepublic.org.
Prior to the screening, guests are welcome to attend a reception for BLIP, a new exhibition of classic video arcade games, at 6 p.m. in the William Fox Gallery, as well as explore the museums core exhibition Behind the Screen.
Hop-Fu is the brainchild of John Carluccio, filmmaker and director of the international turntablist competition Battle Sounds, and Barry Cole, a motion-picture music supervisor (Sling Blade, American Psycho). DJs Excess and IXL are both New York-based turntablists who perform and compete worldwide. The first Hop-Fu collaboration featured DJs Roc Raid and Rob Swift performing a live score to scenes from Five Deadly Venoms and 18 Bronze Men.
