Fanomenon Shorts In Hull

kung fury

27 Jan, Union Mash Up, Hull 7pm, Pay What You Want

Short Film City Hull presents a Fanomenon selection of short films, headlined by the absurdly entertaining KUNG FURY.

KUNG FURY is an over-the-top action comedy written and directed by David Sandberg. The film features: arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure.

Miami Police Department detective and martial artist Kung Fury time travels from the 1980s to World War II to kill Adolf Hitler, a.k.a. “Kung Führer”, and revenge his friend’s death at the hands of the Nazi leader. An error in the time machine sends him further back to the Viking Age.

The film will be screened alongside a selection of our favourite short films from Fanomenon:
