As the COVID-19 pandemic caused arts organizations to scramble for alternate sources of revenue to offset the loss of their in-person audiences, new virtual entertainments began to appear from unexpected sources. One of these was 36 Cinema, the brainchild of rapper, actor, filmmaker and record producer RZA. 36 Cinema was a pop-up streaming service that screened classic martial arts films with live commentary from experts on the genre, including RZA himself.

In this segment, produced in Stepworks Studio by music tech startup TunesMap and aired prior to a screening of Shaolin vs. Lama, RZA's extensive sampling of the Shaolin vs. Lama soundtrack is analyzed visually so viewers can see exactly what portions of the film were used across three different RZA-produced tracks.
