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

Haze & Fog is a zombie movie set in modern-day China. With a title inspired by the blanketing fog of pollution that permeates the country’s many metropolises, the film explores the collective consciousness and monotony of day-to-day life within these urban environments. By harnessing the tropes and metaphorical significance of zombies within Western popular culture, Cao Fei questions what it means to be ‘walking dead’ and the magical potential embedded within everyday existence that might allow an escape from this tedious march.

Includes live intro with Chris Berry.
