The artist's reflections on Hong Kong have continued in his subsequent works. Bodyguards and Assassins (Lot 682) is one of the largest works from this famous series: the quadriptych stretches nearly five metres long. Bodyguards and Assassins is set in Hong Kong early in the twentieth century. In the film, a group of revolutionaries protect Sun Yat-sen from assassination. The artist selected a scene from the film in which the revolutionary Yeung Ku-wan gives a speech to students at the Furen Literary Society, describing the idealistic Three People's Principles advocated by Sun Yat-sen. Chow Chun Fai distills this scene into a response to the recent democracy movement in Hong Kong, expressing the artist's hopes for the city.
