I Can, I Will, I Did

November 12, 2017 @ 4:05 pm - 6:05 pm

$5 – $10
Film Still from I Can, I Will, I Did

Directed by Nadine Truong

depressed foster youth named Ben is bullied and consequently gets into a car accident. His recovery process is slow until he meets Adrienne, a fellow wheelchair-bound patient at the hospital. Adrienne breathes hope into his life and introduces to him her grandfather, Taekwondo Master Kang. Master Kang not only teaches Ben how to walk and get back up on his feet but also how to take charge of his own life.

PAAFF alumna Nadine Truong (Someone I Used to Know) uses the martial arts backdrop to tell a classic coming-of-age story complemented by a beautiful score and meticulously crafted cinematography. Based in part on the true story of Master Kang’s Old Greenwich Taekwondo dojang. Nadine and Producer Brian Yang (Linsanity, Snakehead) expected in attendance for post-film Q&A.
