  • Wu Song Slays The Seductress

    Year - 2017

    S-Express (Singapore - Laos)
    Date : 07-09-2018 (FRI)
    Time : 03:30 PM - 05:30 PM
    Place : Waziya Cinema

    Synopsis - A contemporary reinterpretation of a chamber piece extracted from a chapter of one of China's four great classical texts, 'The Water Margins', 'Wu Song Slays The Seductress' is a dance of seduction and murder between Wu Song, the tiger slaying hero, and Pan Jin Lian, Chinese literature's most enduring and notorious femme fatale. The film is a self-reflexive work interplaying the modern cinematic and the traditional Chinese Teochew dramatic form. In attempting to stage the tension between updating a traditional art form and maintaining its authenticity, elements of internet art, ancient Chinese erotica and techno music are introduced to blur the disjuncture between old and new, avant-garde and kitsch, innovation and tradition.
