HEART Cinema: Fist of Fury Noongar Daa (M)
8 July 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15
Produced by Perth Festival and Boomerang and Spear. A Perth Festival commission.
Bruce Lee’s Kung Fu classic from 1972 is the first feature film ever to be re-voiced in an Australian language.
When Lee’s incredible power propelled him to global stardom, Noongar mob here, just like audiences worldwide, took note, practiced moves and found inspiration in Lee’s discipline, loyalty and the eternal fight against injustice.
Fist of Fury 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 classic film is now reshaped and adapted in a ‘kwop’ new form. Noongar daa moordidjabiny!
Fist of Fury Noongar Daa is a Noongar language version of the 1972 Hong Kong film Fist of Fury (精武門). Noongar language is the original language from the South West of WA.
The new Noongar dialogue is based on the film’s original Cantonese dialogue, with new English subtitles created to best represent both.
Like thousands of Indigenous languages worldwide, Noongar is critically endangered. This dub was made for Noongar by Noongar with the support of Perth Festival’s Noongar Advisory Circle, and is dedicated to all who have supported Noongar Daa.
This movie is classified as M.
Film is in Noongar with English subtitles.
Venue doors and Bar/Kiosk open an hour before the show.
