Kernow’s Kick-Ass Kung-Fu Kweenz

kweenz Kernows Kick Ass Kung Fu Kweenz

A short film directed by Carl Grose

Episode Seven of a 70s Cornish comedy kung-fu series that never happened, Kernow’s Kick-Ass Kung Fu Kweens pulls no karate kicks or punches in exploding Cornish culture into the 21st century…

When three Cornish sisters become the victims of a chemical leak, they discover they have acquired superhuman powers and vow to rid Cornwall’s streets of crime – and never to rest until their parents’ mysterious killer is brought to justice…

Filmed entirely in Cornwall on Super-8 and dubbed ‘badly’ into Kernewek (the Cornish language), KKKK was the winner of the Govynn Kernewek Award at the 2003 Cornwall Film Festival – a prize to make a new film in the Cornish language. 

The film was premiered at the 2004 festival to a sell-out crowd.
