Wong Ping’s Fables 2
CHN 2019, 4K, 13’30’’, KANTONESISCH/CANTONESE
Behind the bright retro-pop colors and grating sound effects of video games, Wong Pings’ animated fables reveal the social fabric of Hong Kong. They satirically depict the agony of a democratic society moving towards hyper-consumption and the formation of a police state. Made before the out-break of the pro-democracy protests of 2019, the dark twists and turns in the life of a former activist vegetarian cow and a three-headed rabbit show what could have caused the tensions to boil over.
