Many people have been asking me, how long is the film? What is it about? 92 minutes!? Some people are excited about 92 minutes of kung fu, while others have seemed a bit concerned. Pui Chan: Kung Fu Pioneer, is not just about kung fu. Although we love kung fu, this film is about much more.
We can all relate to his stories on some level. Dreaming, working hard to achieve those dreams, getting married, having a family, etc. However, there are other moments in his life, that are difficult to imagine. Without giving too much away, it always shocks me to hear of his hard ships of growing up in China. Life was so different during that time and place, but what amazes me is that although he suffered and experienced so much, he is not an angry or bitter man. While other people may dwell only on the negative of an experience, he uses it as fuel for positivity. After all, if he were a very happy little boy in China, I doubt he would be here in America today, sharing his gift with the world.
So, it is all about perspective.
