The Paper Tigers
Stay after the screening for a post-film Zoom Q&A with the filmmakers!
Three childhood martial arts prodigies–notorious in their prime as “the three tigers”–have grown into middle-aged men, now one kick away from pulling a muscle. But when their master is murdered, they must juggle their dead-end jobs, dad duties, and overcome old grudges to come together and avenge his death. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Boston Asian-American Film Festival, this sweet and heartfelt indie gem is a fun twist on the Kung Fu comedy–a charmingly fresh take on an old genre.
USA, 2020, 108 minutes, Rated PG-13, Directed by. Tran Quoc Bao
