As teenagers, kung fu disciples Danny (Alain Uy), Hing (Ron Yuan) and Jim (Mykel Shannon Jenkins) were inseparable. Fast forward 25 years, and each has grown into a washed-up middle-aged man seemingly one kick away from pulling a hamstring—and not at all preoccupied with thoughts of martial arts or childhood best friends. But when their old master is murdered, the trio reunites, soon learning that avenging their sifu will require conquering old grudges (and a dangerous hitman still armed with ample knee cartilage) if they are to honorably defend his legacy. Directed by Tran Quoc Bao, The Paper Tigers is an homage to feel-good martial arts films and is the winner of the Audience Award at the Boston Asian American Film Festival after screening at film festivals around the world.
The online encore screening includes a pre-recorded Q&A between director, Tran Quoc Bao and Reel Asian Head of Programming, Aram Collier.
