"THE PAPER TIGERS" is a fresh take on a familiar kung fu movie trope and Director, BAO TRAN mixes it up as he sprinkles in some honest characters with genuine belly laughs along with some good kung fu. Bao, along with Producer YUJI OKUMOTO and Action Director KEN QUITUGUA stop by the Kung Fu Drive-In Live room on Clubhouse to talk about the nearly decade long journey to bring The Paper Tigers to the big screen. Like the main characters of the film, this is a tale of perseverance, dedication, and sticking to your guns in the face of some larger than life obstacles.
