Director Ang Lee’s Best Picture-nominated, martial arts/romantic film set in 18th century China, features spectacular cinematography and martial arts action sequences. In 19th century Qing Dynasty China, a warrior (Chow Yun-Fat) gives his sword, Green Destiny, to his lover (Michelle Yeoh) to deliver to safe keeping, but it is stolen, and the chase is on to find it.

The score for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was written by Chinese born American composer Tan Dun for the 2000 Ang Lee film of the same name. The score blends Chinese harmonies and instruments with Western orchestra music, creating moods ranging from wistful romance to heroic triumph, and features cello solos by Yo-Yo Ma. Screening followed by a discussion hosted by WXXI's Brenda Tremblay. Details here.
