Kylie Bracknell’s Noongar language dub of the 1972 Bruce Lee classic Fist of Fury packs a fresh and fiercely First Peoples punch.
Fist of Fury sees Lee on one of his most beloved adventures. When kung fu pupil Chen Zhen (Lee) discovers his teacher was murdered, vengeance sets him on an unstoppable path. Where will it take him? In Fist of Fury Noongar Daa, the answer comes via Noongar voice. Inspired by the Navajo dub of Star Wars, Bracknell and Boomerang and Spear created this dub of the martial arts classic with moorditj (solid) support from Perth Festival's Noongar Advisory Circle. Featuring the voices of Noongar performers, it fights for the survival of traditional language in the same spirit in which Lee's characters fought against injustice – while having some furiously cinematic fun along the way. The result is familiar but with a vital, celebratory twist that proves some stories transcend time and language.

You could really sense the glee some audience members felt hearing their community’s voices on the big screen.
Simon Collins, The West Australian
For me this is very much a healing offer and pays homage to that generation that still suffers today from feeling language loss.
