Shaolin Ulysses: Kungfu Monks in America
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Martha Burr, Mei-Juin Chen


SHAOLIN ULYSSES examines the American immigrant experience from the unique perspective of five emigre monks from China's legendary Buddhist sanctuary and martial arts academy, the Shaolin Temple. As the Zen masters and kungfu artists share their stories of life in America--from building new temples to performing in Las Vegas--they express the universal immigrant struggle to balance their native culture with the demands of Western society.
