Join us for a screening and discussion of The Professor - Tai Chi's Journey West, a film by Barry Strugatz. The film is the first major feature documentary about Tai Chi and one of its greatest masters, Cheng Man-Ching, a man who brought Tai Chi and Chinese culture to the West during the swinging, turbulent 60’s. Though Cheng is an important transformational figure, his teachings have been overlooked. This documentary film tells the story of his remarkable life and features Tai Chi as a martial art and a spiritual practice. Over the past decade, we have shot approximately fifty hours of footage in New York, North Carolina, and California.

Q&A after film with director Barry Strugatz and cinematographer Ken Van Sickle,.
