In the land between heaven and earth, Sifu Yang, immortal Kung Fu master, assembles his disciples in a cosmic battle of Yin and Yang. Weary of the ephemeral, ungraspable nature of the impermanent world, Sifu yearns for union in the mystical realm of which his late wife now dwells. To reach her, he must sacrifice everything… and everyone.
This weekend we shoot our final principal photography with Rachel and Sifu Scott Jensen. Rachel will be playing two characters, including an ethereal ghost. In addition, we capture the final duel of the film, where Hua Yin attacks Sifu Yang with double daggers in the forest.
