Kung Fu is a documentation of the spontaneous expressions (nobody was told how to pose) found during the recording process of alcoholics from the streets of San José, Heredia and Tegucigalpa. Heroes who have been immersed in a symbolic universe. A space where naturalism coexists with idealism, the earthly with the divine, the profane with the sacred.  Kung Fu is the corporal calligraphy of street characters who represent themselves as warriors.
