Kid Koala's Nufonia Must Fall Live
A Graphic Novel Animated In Real Time With A Live Soundtrack
Montreal-based scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala presents a magical, multi-disciplinary adaptation of his graphic novel Nufonia Must Fall. The story centres around a headphones-sporting robot on the verge of obsolescence and infatuated with a winsome office drone. Directed by K.K. Barrett, recently Oscar-nominated for Her, this live adaptation unfolds via real-time filming of more than a dozen miniature stages and a cast of puppets. Koala and the dynamic Afiara Quartet provide live scoring on piano, strings and turntables.
Performances will open with the international premiere of Minotaur, a 6 minute short film of vibrant 3D images flowing through the stages of birth, death and back, evoking universal emotions. Produced by NFB, Minotaur is the latest film from award-winning animator Munro Ferguson.
