"Trajectories" brings together cultural theorists not only from countries with a known historical critical tradition such as America, Canada and Australia but from the East-Asia locations of Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Philippines, India and Thailand. It constitutes a critical confrontation between the imperial and colonial co-ordinates of north and south, east and west. …

Shaw Brothers' number one action hit of 1975, and deservedly so. The character of one-man kung-fu dynamo Big Brother Cheng and kung-fu superstar Chen Kuan-tai were made for each other. A Robin Hood-like restaurant manager who socks it to the thugs in order to make the mean streets of Hong Kong a little less mean, Big Brother Cheng made his first appearance in the extremely popular The Tea House, the success of which spawned this even more successful sequel.

In the years between the death of Bruce Lee and the emergence of Jackie Chan, audiences fondly remembered the name of Big Brother Cheng. Real life champion martial artist Chen Kuan-tai powerfully plays the role in this memorable saga of action and romance, as well as its sequel, Big Brother Cheng. Fighting against gangsters and for his true love, The Teahouse is a tough and tender landmark of the kung-fu genre.

Genre: Drama

YOUNG PEOPLE (1972) is easily the most unusual film I've yet seen from either Chang Cheh or the Shaw Bros. studio. It features three of the studio's top kung fu stars, David Chiang, Ti Lung and Chen Kuan Tai (who would all team up again with Chang Cheh the following year for the swordplay classic, BLOOD BROTHERS), yet it's set at a contemporary Hong Kong college campus and details the activities of a large group of students as they prepare for a set of competitions and 10th Anniversary festivals. One group, led by David Chiang, prepares some musical entertainment. One group, led by Ti Lung, plays basketball. And the third group, led by Chen Kuan Tai, practices kung fu. In the midst of it all, the three stars decide to participate in a go-kart race.

Old style kung fu films always had brothel, restaurant, and of course gambling scenes. Gambling films became popular in the early 80s, so it made sense to have an intense poker game standoff between early good guy, kung fu star Chen Kuan Tai, and early villain, kung fu star Lo Lieh.

Foremost innovator on the banjo, Béla Fleck is joined by Hindustani master V. M. Bhatt and Chinese virtuoso Jie-Bing Chen in a collaboration that begins with a clean slate and culminates in a masterpiece of synthesis. Adding poignant but subtle coloring to this unique work are Hindustani flutist Ronu Majumdar and violinist Sangeeta Shankar, as well the Karnatak percussionist Puvalur Srinivasan on mridangam.

Virtuoso represents a selection of Ray Chen's personal favorites from different strands of the violin repertoire. The album opens with the fiendishly difficult Devil's Trill Sonata by Tartini. Next is Bach's Chaconne from Partita No. 2 in D Minor, which Chen describes as a study in the range of human emotions and the epitome of the solo violin repertoire. Henryk Wieniawski is among Chen's favorite composers, whose beautiful Legende in G Minor Op. 17 the artist first played at the age of eight. The epic Variations on an original theme in A Major Op.15, however, is a work to be attempted solely by musicians in the very top flight. Chen chose to end his first album with Cesar Franck's intimate and poetic Violin Sonata in A Major. It features a lifetime of experiences, all represented in one single piece, and it provides a fitting conclusion to his imaginative and far-ranging debut recording.
