Dir. Stephen Fung. 2012, 98 mins. Digital projection. With Yuan Xiaochao, Angelababy, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Eddie Peng. In a legendary Chen Village, everyone is a martial arts master, using their powerful Chen Style Tai Chi in all aspects of their lives. Lu Chan has arrived to train, but the villagers are forbidden to teach outsiders, and they do their best to discourage and alienate him. But when a man arrives with a frightening steam-powered machine and plans to build a railroad through the village, the villagers realize they may have no choice but to put their faith in Lu Chan…who has a secret power of his own. This new Chinese saga features brilliant action scenes choreographed by Hong Kong legend Sammo Hung. This screening is presented in celebration of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day.
