Conversations at the Edge: SHU LEA CHEANG: FRESH KILL


THEATER 1 Thu, Apr 11 6:00 PM


Renowned media artist Shu Lea Cheang presents her groundbreaking debut feature, a cyberfeminist eco-thriller, newly restored for its 30th anniversary. Partners Shareen (Sarita Choudhury) and Claire (Erin McMurtry) find themselves in the crosshairs of a nefarious multinational corporation after they discover it is poisoning citizens through toxic cat food, contaminated sushi, and nuclear waste. Shifting between horror, camp, and agit-prop, FRESH KILL’s tale of predatory capitalism and environmental catastrophe remains just as pressing today. Both Shu Lea Cheang programs are presented in partnership with Video Data Bank.
