Kung Fu, Hot Girls and a Curse. What could go wrong?
(MMA Comedy 85min, Not Rated)
Directed by Sven Kamm
Beate Antares (Dayfly TV, Sirens of Soccer) and an appearance by Jackie Chan
"Curse of the Shaolin is a humorous account of the trials and tribulations of making a 'cursed' documentary about the Shaolin Warriors of Chinatown. These Shaolin Warriors Monks, five innocent young men who grew up in the Shaolin Temples in the middle of China, now struggle to survive performing the ancient art of kung-fu in the entertainment capital of Los Angeles. But can holiness survive Hollywood?
Filmmaker Sven Kamm was introduced to the Shaolin by actress Beate Antares and together they decide to explore the lives of these young kung-fu masters. While making the film, Kamm finds out that there is a rumor that if you reveal the secrets of the Shaolin will unleash the same deadly curse that supposedly killed Bruce Lee. Initially all is well, but soon there are hints of this strange curse, and the project begins to fall apart. And just when they think it cant get worse, Kamm find out he needs to have open heart surgery. Kamm is convinced that he has fallen victim to the mysterious curse.
Determined to finish this documentary and despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Kamm, a two time Emmy award winning editor and award winning director, mixes archival footage, cartoons and even old kung-fu movies to create a humorous and unique documentary. Despite open-heart surgery, shaky funding, and a curse scaring off the crew, Kamm manages to complete CURSE OF THE SHAOLIN.
