A total of $75,000 is the current goal for the campaign which closes on December 8. Thus, Taimak will also be on the road before then to host event screenings of his hit 1985 kung fu thriller from director Michael Schultz at Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas across the U.S. through November 30 to help advance the campaign. Perks, of course, have been listed per donation so those who are well-pocketed with enough change and a keen interest in some cool memorabilia as well as on seeing the cult martial arts star in a brand new filmic narrative are more than welcome to pony up.
Celebrate thirty years of BERRY GORDY’S THE LAST DRAGON, now fully remastered in high definition on Blu-ray. Martial arts student Leroy Green (Taimak) is on a quest to obtain the elusive all-powerful force known as “The Glow.” Along the way he must battle the evil, self-proclaimed Shogun of Harlem – a kung fu warrior also known as Sho’nuff (Julius J. Carry III) – and rescue a beautiful singer (Prince protégée, Vanity) from an obsessed record promoter. Combining pulsating music, cutting edge dancing and the best in non-stop action, BERRY GORDY’S THE LAST DRAGON is kickin’ good fun featuring an amazing Motown soundtrack, including music by Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Vanity and DeBarge performing their smash hit “Rhythm of the Night.”
