Bruce Lee’s kung fu classic from 1972 becomes the first feature film ever to be re-voiced in an Australian language.
When Lee’s incredible power propelled him from Hong Kong cinema to global stardom in the early 1970s, Noongar mob here, just like audiences worldwide, took note, practiced moves and found inspiration in Lee’s examples of discipline, loyalty and the eternal fight against injustice.
Fist of Fury, the film that launched Lee internationally, is the epitome of all that. Set in Shanghai in 1910, it stars Lee as Chen Zhen, a loyal student out for vengeance against racist bullies.
Thanks to an all-Noongar language voice cast, this undying classic film is now reshaped and adapted in a ‘kwop’ new form. Noongar daa moordidjabiny!
- Film is in Noongar with English subtitles.
- Rated M contains medium level violence.
- Duration: 1hr 49mins
Fist of Fury Noongar Daa is a Noongar language version of the 1972 Hong Kong film Fist of Fury (精武門). Noongar language is the original language from the area now called the south west of Western Australia.
The new Noongar dialogue is based on the film’s original Cantonese dialogue.
All dialogue and vocal effects were performed, recorded, edited and mixed on Noongar Boodjar from November 2020 to January 2021.
New English subtitles have been created to best represent the Noongar and original Cantonese dialogue.
Like thousands of Indigenous languages around the world, Noongar is critically endangered. This dub was created for Noongar and by Noongar with the support of Perth Festival’s Noongar Advisory Circle.
Boomerang and Spear dedicates this recording to all who have spoken, shared and supported Noongar Daa.
Produced by Perth Festival and Boomerang and Spear
A live Q&A hosted by the Noongar langauage cast will held be prior to the screening of Fist of Fury.
