Iron and Silk
“What you learned is garbage,” Mark Franklin’s martial arts instructor tells him. “You have to relearn everything.” So Mark practices hours on end, trying to master the skills that will give him the look and power of a tiger crashing down a mountainside. But that’s not the only learning he’ll experience during this two years in China. Each day brings a new clash between Mark’s western ways and the age-old traditions of the Orient. Mark Salzman portrays Franklin in this exciting film based on his autobiographical book.
