On the occasion of Cao Fei’s exhibition, Serpentine Cinema is delighted to present a series of the artist’s films screened across the UK.

A ‘retro Sci-Fi’ movie made out of the artist’s research into the transformation of Beijing’s Jiuxianqiao (Hong Xia) district, Nova tells the story of a computer scientist attempting to turn humans into digital mediums. Shifting between past, present and future narratives, the film takes us on a journey beyond chronological time into a series of dreamlike worlds that hover between fantasy and reality.
