Shu Lea Cheang, Fresh Kill, 1994

A unique story of two young lesbian parents caught up in a global exchange of industrial waste via contaminated sushi. Set in New York where raw fish lips have become all the rage across restaurants in Manhattan. Strange things start to happen: household pets start to glow ominously and then disappear altogether; the sky opens up and snows soap flakes and people start speaking in dangerous tongues.

Fresh Kill premiered at the Berlin Film Festival, Berlin in 1994.  In 1995, it featured in the Whitney Biennal, New York and was broadcast on Channel Four in the UK.
