The Paper Tigers is a “rousing underdog story about three out-of-shape Kung Fu fighters who have to avenge their master, except they’ve got day jobs and kids to feed.”
The film has a Kickstarter from writer, editor, and director Bao Tran; he states on the page – “With this year’s astounding success of big-budget studio films like Crazy Rich Asians and Black Panther and low-budget independent hits like Searching and Sorry To Bother You, the audiences are hungry for high-quality stories made by people of color and starring a diverse cast. We know the demand is there and we need passionate supporters like you to fill it.”
“Thanks to our first crowdfunding campaign, we were able to shoot the beginning portions of the film (where our heroes are youngsters), but we still have a ways to go to shoot the rest and finish the film (when our heroes are much older adults).”
