EMPTY HAND: THE REAL KARATE KIDS

2011 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Kevin Derek

WORLD PREMIERE This high-energy doc follows young American karate competitors – three girls and one boy – into the biggest tournament of the year. We come to understand how their relationships to family, teachers and opponents drive them through the rigors and sacrifices of training. It’s a film about striving to be the best, despite the kicks and bruises that life throws at you.
