THE DRUMMER
118 minutes, Mandarin | Cantonese with English subtitles
Director: Kenneth Bi
Starring: Jaycee Chan, Tony Ka Fai Leung, Angelica Leeart

Sid (Jaycee Chan – son of Jackie Chan) the rebellious son of a controlling and savage mafia boss in Hong Kong, has to flee to the beautiful mountains of Taiwan upon enraging his father’s violent adversary. 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. Sid’s independence from the mafia life and his father is profoundly challenged, however, when a twist of fate brings him back home to Hong Kong.
