About the Event
Come and experience the great 'Shaolin'. A cinematic extravaganza starring some of Hong Kong's finest, Andy Lau, Jackie Chan and Nicolas Tse. A historical martial arts epic, this story focuses on the Shaolin temple, a place at the heart of Chinese traditional culture, philosophy and medicine. It is the home of Chan (Zen) Buddhism where martial arts training and Qi Gong exercises serve as the foundation for spiritual practice. It is also somewhere which housed the finest fighters in China and so became of great political significance too. If you are looking for a great movie but also to learn something about the magic at the heart of Chinese culture, this is the movie for you.
Alex will be giving a short talk before the movie to give you some background on the Shaolin temple, on Zen and on cultivation practices using Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Chinese Medicine. Experience the essence of Shaolin for yourself!
