1994 │USA│Fiction │Colour│ 80min│English

From the beaches of Taiwan's Orchid Island, used as a nuclear waste site in the 1980s, to the shores of New York's Staten Island, Fresh Kill revolves around the detritus of an urban consumer society whilst exploring connections among characters on the edges of corporate capitalism and off-centre in a white, bourgeois, heterosexual world.


As an artist and filmmaker, Shu Lea Cheang has worked with various art mediums and film formats, including installation, performance, net art, public art, video installation, feature length film and mobile web serial. As a net art pioneer, her Brandon (1998-1999) was the first web art commissioned and collected bythe Guggenheim museum in New York. She has been crafting her own film genre of new queer cinema, calling them eco-cybenoia (Fresh Kill, 1994), scifi cyberpunk (I.K U 2000 ), scifi cyphepunk ( FluidØ, 2017).
