Judy Lee is out to avenge the massacre of her family by the Emperor’s men and is assisted by another young woman. The two women wuxia heroines battle an assortment of villains, including wizards who have kung fu gorillas, as they infiltrate the evil Emperor’s court.
In a tribute to the woman warrior dub/reggae icon, Dr. Israel will be sonically re-imagining the kung fu cult classic. The good Doctor will perform a live sound system set, creating an original soundtrack with music exclusively featuring the work of women artists. Expect classics, remixes and even unreleased tracks in this genre clashing, mind-bending multimedia mashup.
