keanu-reeves-on-shooting-directorial-debut-in-china-0-00-28-151Sitting down this morning to promote SIDE BY SIDE, his upcoming documentary on the art of digital filmmaking and the death of photochemical films as we know them, KEANU REEVES took a few minutes to talk about MAN OF TAI CHI, his big screen directorial debut currently in production in China. Using state-of-the-art digital techniques, MAN OF TAI CHI is also employing crews from all over China.  Shooting on foreign soil is daunting even for experienced filmmakers but REEVES appears to be taking it all in stride and credits years of pre-production for keeping him in check.

SIDE BY SIDE opens in limited release 8/17
