Presented by the Visiting Filmmakers Series, Green Machine, Student Involvement , and Center for the Arts.

The Visiting Filmmakers Series is co-hosting an outdoor movie screening with the fabulous Shaolin Jazz this September. SHAOLIN JAZZ - CAN I KICK IT? is next level. Gerald Watson and DJ 2-Tone Jones proudly present a unique film experience made for lovers of Kung-Fu flicks, the music they inspired, and everything else in between. At each event, martial arts and other films are screened and scored, scene-by-scene, with a blend of Hip Hop, Soul, Funk and more remixed live by DJ 2-Tone Jones.

About Shaolin Jazz: A testament to the stylistic connections between Jazz and Hip-Hop, Shaolin Jazz is a mix project that fuses Jazz songs and breaks with a cappellas and vocal samples from the iconic Hip-Hop group Wu-Tang Clan. The inspiration for SHAOLIN JAZZ came by way of graphic designer Logan Walters, who recreated a series of Wu-Tang album covers to resemble those of earlier Blue Note and Impulse Jazz album covers.

Join us for this fun, family friendly evening, also featuring a live performance by George Mason University’s acclaimed pep band, The Green Machine, before the film starts.

This event will be held on Mason Pond Lawn, which is the outdoor performance space across from the Center for the Arts on George Mason University’s Fairfax campus.
