The Vietnamese with Kenneth Nguyen

Ep # 66 Eng - Bao Tran - Film Director - The Paper Tigers

May 13, 2021

Mentored early on by master action director Corey Yuen, Bao was instilled with an approach to action that doesn't rely solely on spectacle, but also draws on story and character.

His editing credits include 'Cho Lon,' one of Southeast Asia's highest-budgeted action blockbusters, and 'Jackpot,' a heartfelt comedy selected as Vietnam's official entry to the 2016 Oscars for Best Foreign Film.

His first directorial feature 'The Paper Tigers' has garnered praise from Collider as "an impressive feature debut with confident command of the narrative and action alike, it's an absolutely lovely time at the movies."
