Discussant: Dr. Ed EmanuEl

In 2010 famed martial arts star, Jet Li, made one of the most unusual and beautiful films of his career: Ocean Heaven.  A terminally ill father has to prepare his special needs son for a life without his father. Departing from his usual action genre films Jet Li explores a father son relationship that is tender and loving. Ironically, this film foreshadows a true life challenge in Jet Li’s life that he struggles to deal with today. In Mandarin with English subtitles, 96 minutes.
