Pushing Hands (1991)

In collaboration with the Taiwanese Undergraduate Student Organization

Taiwan/USA | 105min | NR | Blu-Ray | Dir. Ang Lee

Having just moved from Beijing, elderly tai chi master Mr. Chu (Sihung Lung) struggles to adjust to life in New York, living with his Americanized son Alex (Bo Z. Wang). Chu immediately butts heads with his put-upon white daughter-in-law, Martha (Deb Snyder), a writer who seems to blame him for her own paralyzing inability to focus. But when Chu begins teaching tai chi at a local school, his desire to make a meaningful connection comes to fruition in the most unexpected of ways.
