Very honoured to be mentioned in this list alongside all this Asian Canadian female talent! Thanks Kristin Fung (an amazing Asian Canadian female artist herself) for the feature! Happy International Women's Day :) (click on the image to go to the article)
In August, I was invited by local director Jennifer Su to work on the short film, Wave Hands Like Clouds, together. I was responsible for the score and sound editing (like voice stuff). I really appreciate Jennifer's vision for this film. As a Chinese-Canadian in a metropolis like Toronto, I've seen tai chi happening all around me but never really knew much about it. Enjoy!
Here's the official description:
As sunlight fills Grange Park on a weekday morning, building cranes cut across the sky while young professionals speed through the park’s paths on their way to work. A small boombox projects the peaceful sounds of Tai Chi music, setting the pace for a group of lively seniors who meet for both exercise and friendship, always followed by breakfast together. At another corner, a young artist concentrates on moving chi throughout their body, demonstrating the knowledge passed down to them by their shifu, a Chinese medicine doctor. In the afternoon, a class in Scarborough works to improve their sword Tai Chi practice, the walls of their headquarters proudly displaying tournaments they have competed in. Back in Chinatown, a Taoist temple nestled on a residential street hosts evening classes where young volunteers lead participants from all walks of life. As outsiders, we are given a glimpse into how Tai Chi, as a spiritual and physical activity, takes form in different environments, among different bodies—all with their own unique interpretations. The powerful notion that Tai Chi can be done anywhere, by anyone, is embodied by the diverse community of practitioners featured in the film.
