From an email:

“The annual “Made in Hong Kong” Film Festival culminates this weekend, August 20 and 21. The weekend’s events are devoted to the fascinating cross-cultural phenomenon between martial-arts movies and rap music. A “Hop Fu: Hip-hop meets Kung Fu” performance with DJ IXL and DJ Excess of the Kolabz Crew will accompany the screening of Super Ninjas on Saturday, August 20 at 2pm.

On Sunday at 2pm, join us for a screening of Drunken Master followed by a panel discussion at 4pm, “The Hip Hop/Kung Fu Afro-Asian Connection,” co-presented by the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office with the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program.

All events take place at the Freer Gallery of Art Meyer Auditorium (Freer Gallery of Art Jefferson Drive at 12th St SW). Attendance is free and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Auditorium doors open approximately 30 minutes before each show. More details can also be found at the Gallery’s website.”
