Bruce Lee's kung fu classic from 1972 becomes the first feature film ever to be re-voiced in an Australian language.

Join us after the screening for a Q&A with director Kylie Bracknell.  

When Lee's incredible power propelled him from Hong Kong cinema to global stardom in the early 1970s, Noongar mob here, just like audiences worldwide, took note, practised moves and found inspiration in Lee's examples of discipline, loyalty and the eternal fight against injustice.

Fist of Fury, the film that launched Lee internationally, is the epitome of all that. Set in Shanghai in 1910, it stars Lee as Chen Zhen, a loyal student out for vengeance against racist bullies.

Thanks to an all-Noongar language voice cast, this undying classic film is now reshaped and adapted in a 'kwop' new form. Noongar daa moordidjabiny!  

‘Gives new meaning to Lee’s star portrayal of the eternal fight against injustice’ – The AU Review  

Presented in partnership with Perth Festival. A Perth Festival commission. Produced by Perth Festival and Boomerang and Spear.
