Awaken the Dragon

Surprise, I saw a good movie. Slow in some part but overall a very good documentary movie about a group of cancer patients creating a dragon boat racing team and over years become a winning team even when team members die. I would highly recommend this film.

Long Live The Dragons

Joyfully Inspiring Voyage with a boatload of dragons. Everything I love about a documentary. People facing and overcoming obstacles. Facing into the storm and not just smiling and saying aphorisms, fighting for life with vigor and gusto. Hurrah for the Dragons. I'll watch this again when I want another dose of inspiration.

Must see

An amazing documentary for anyone who has been touched by cancer or for anyone who wants to be inspired by real people who know how to live life to the fullest . It will lift you up and make you want to share it with someone .
