Part of Film series Screen Epiphanies
Directed by Stephen Chow | 2004

With Chow, Tze Chung Lam, Qiu Yuen

This monthly series brings a prominent artistic or cultural figure to BAM to discuss the film that inspired their passion for cinema, followed by a screening of the film.

Set in 1940s Shanghai, this action-packed, martial arts comedy follows Sing (Stephen Chow) and his friend, Bone, as they try to convince the residents of Pig Sty Alley that they’re members of the dreaded Axe Gang only to discover that the town’s residents are more than capable of defending themselves. Roger Ebert described the film as, “Jackie Chan and Buster Keaton meet Quentin Tarantino and Bugs Bunny.”

Inspired by the Screen Epiphanies series at London’s BFI Southbank

Before the film, Bowen Yang will discuss how Kung Fu Hustle inspired his love of cinema.
