Steampunk-ed Kung Fu: Transnational Modernity in Hong Kong Director Stephen Fung's Tai Chi Films

Kenneth Chan, University of Northern Colorado, will discuss Hong Kong director Stephen Fun's two-part 3D martial arts extravaganza, "Tai Chi Zero" and "Tai Chi Hero." These kung fu flicks would have been unremarkable as Hong Kong entries to the genre if not for the fact that the director has amalgamated, rather creatively, the martial arts film with a form of retro science fiction: steampunk films. Chan argues that these films force a rethinking of China's and Chinese cultures' relationship to the West. Friday, March 6, 5 p.m. Humanities 250.
