The classic, meditative movements of T'ai Chi Ch'uan harmonize with nature and camera as a solo figure executes the forms. The camera as acolyte witnesses the transit of body, ground and sky as the man moves from oceanside cliff, to forest, to mountain and finally to the austere city-space of a studio where, perhaps, his body had been all the time.
This film's graceful visual dignity is appealing for studies in martial arts, yoga, dance, body movement, film as art and to anyone interested in the confluence of eastern and western culture.
