Special Encore Screening "Pui Chan: Kung Fu Pioneer" March 24, 2016 - 7:00PM
Join us for a Special Encore Screening of "Pui Chan: King Fu Pioneer" at the Willow Theatre on March 24th at 7:00PM. Step into the extraordinary life of a Chinese immigrant who overcame challenges as early as childhood, eventually making a life for himself one that would touch the lives of many others around the world. It all started with a simple dream and today, the dream lives on. This family-authorized biography follows the path of a young boy who learns the value of hard work and perseverance through kung fu, escapes the harshness of political oppression, bravely ventures out on his own, and embraces opportunity in a new land. Watch the beginning of an eager martial arts instructor in 1960s Boston, Massachusetts, open his own Kung Fu school, and start to spread the tradition, always maintaining the original fundamentals and values he learned as a boy. Pui would finally realize his dream of building the first authentic Chinese martial arts temple in America as a tribute to his kung fu master.  The now highly recognized Grandmaster Pui Chan, 6th generation successor of the Wah Lum Kung Fu System, is one of the pioneers responsible for bringing traditional Kung Fu to America, and leads an internationally renowned martial arts school and system across the world. Fifty years later, Pui's eldest daughter and successor Mimi confronts a new set of challenges, trying to keep the traditional values alive in an increasingly modernized era. Directed and narrated by Mimi Chan.
