Director Statement : What
 I
 want 
the
 documentary 
to 
do 
more 
than 
anything 
is 
to
 capture 
and 
illustrate 
the 
concept 
of ki, 
the 
term 
for 
the 
life
force, 
inner
 power
 or 
spiritual
 energy
 that
 is 
a 
part 
of
 everything 
that 
exists. 

I 
always 
feel
 it
 when
 I 
look 
or 
think
 about 
Kumi’s
 work.
