Winner of four Academy Awards (Best Foreign Language Film, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Score), Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is director Ang Lee’s internationally acclaimed homage to the Hong Kong wuxia (martial arts) films that inspired him as a young man in his native Taiwan. Set against the gorgeous landscapes of nineteenth-century China, this epic tale combines exhilarating martial arts and action sequences choreographed by the great Yuen Wo Ping (best known to American audiences for his work on The Matrix) with a story rife with romance, intrigue, and dramatic soul. Before the screening, Andrew Cohen, professor of physics at Boston University, explores some of the ways in which the film "bends" the laws of physics. Co-presented by the Museum of Science, Boston and New Scientist magazine.
