Ocean Heaven 2010
This film is about parental love and autism. Li plays a working father who sometimes lets his son swim with the sea creatures @ Qingdao Polar Ocean World. He is also worried about his son being alone in the world when he passes away from liver cancer. This heartfelt drama is a departure from Jet’s Li martial arts action persona. This movie is an ode to a father who is determined to find a home for his son before it is too late. At the end, the boy was able to find independence for both to let go.
AFI Award winning cinematographer – Christopher Doyle
