One of the earliest non-commercial films on the subject of martial arts, Chinese master Chao-Li Chi performs Tai Chi for Maya Deren's camera to a spare soundtrack combining Chinese flute and Haitian drum music. Of her films, Meditation on Violence was the title least satisfying to Deren, but the subject still has considerable appeal outside of the experimental genre with which she is commonly identified.
