> Hi Mars-
> I hope you are doing well!  I just wanted to send you the  
> information about the Taiwanese film both Jennie and I were talking  
> about on the bus to the Chivas game.  I've attached a flyer for the  
> film night that will take place on Thursday, May 13th at 8 PM on the  
> 3rd floor of Bradley Hall.  We'd LOVE to have your group come by!   
> And don't forget that we have FREE popcorn, hot cocoa and tea!
> Here is the trailer if you want to check it out: http://www.filmmovement.com/trailers/videoplayer.asp?CLIP=201
> Here is the synopsis of the movie:
> In the East, the drum is the king of all musical instruments. The  
> intense sound of the drum can penetrate a man's body. The solemn  
> beat of the drum can open a man's heart. The powerful vibration of  
> the drum can awaken a man's soul.
> Sid, the rebellious son of Kwan, a controlling and savage triad boss  
> in Hong Kong, has to flee to Taiwan upon enraging his father's  
> adversary, a powerful tycoon and underground business leader. Hiding  
> out in the mountains, Sid encounters a group of Zen drummers whose  
> mesmerizing art, rigorous physical training, and austere way of life  
> pique this hostile urban young man's interest and he requests to  
> join the group. Although Sid despises his father, he is turning out  
> to be a younger version of him: wild and defiant. Immersing in the  
> world of the Zen drummers eventually converts him into a firm and  
> focused young man. Sid's independence from the triad life and his  
> father is profoundly challenged, however, when a twist of fate  
> awaits him back home in Hong Kong and forces him to choose between  
> loyalty to his family and his new found faith in himself ...
> Let me know if you have any questions and we hope to see you there!
