Directed by Samantha Biffot | 2016

How did a boy from Gabon follow in the footsteps of his hero Bruce Lee to become a martial arts master in China? This uplifting documentary traces the journey of Luc Bendza who, inspired by kung fu movies, became the first African to enter the Shaolin Temple at the age of fourteen. Overcoming racism and cultural barriers, he went on to win a world championship and work with greats like Jackie Chan—a testament to extraordinary passion and resilience.
