November 1st, 2013 - Ru Yi Multicultural Studio sponsored and showed the award-winning movie "Chess Kids" in Taos. Director Lynn Hamrick joined us in person to speak about her filming experience with the young players. This re-released special edition included additional footage and personal interviews with the star players almost 20 years later. It is a fascinating movie with so much humanity in the story and artistry of story telling than just the game of chess.
Director Lynn Hamrick also spoke about her new feature film with Academy Award winner, Viola Davis, to be filmed in New Orleans. She is currently in pre-production of another documentary film about a Japanese restaurant owner in Los Angeles. You can find more information about Director Lynn Hamrick and her work at: www.lightheartedfilms.com.
With her gracious permission, we were able to send the donations from this event to Metta Theatre in El Prado to support young artists in Taos. Thank you so much, Lynn.
A few copies of this wonderful film is available at Ru Yi Studio with Director Lynn Hamrick's gracious permission.
