WONG PING'S FABLES 2
Completed before Hong Kong's pro-democracy protests of 2019, the dark turns taken in the lives of an ex-activist vegetarian cow and a three-headed rabbit show what may have caused tensions to boil over.
“Beneath their gleefully retro VHS aesthetic and a subversively crude humour, Wong Ping’s films offer some of the sharpest commentary on living under hyper-consumerist late stage capitalism. With his Fables, Ping has crafted a collection of moral tales that highlight the tension created when our desire to fit into that system sits anxiously against our own moral and ethical codes, resulting in ironic and often violent denouements, that reflect our own real world abjection and debasement.”
