DJ Kid Koala
Nufonia Must Fall

A magical, multidisciplinary adaptation of a graphic novel by Montreal-based scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala.
The story of a headphones-sporting robot on the verge of obsolescence and infatuated with a winsome office drone unfolds live via real-time filming/editing/projection of more than a dozen miniature stages and a cast of puppets. The elaborate action is directed by K.K. Barrett, recently Oscar-nominated for Her. DJ Kid Koala and the dynamic Afiara Quartet provide the live score for this silent film.

“Part of the enjoyment is glancing from the screen to the dimly lighted stage, seeing the puppeteers move from backdrop to backdrop and watching the ingenuity of the perspective and the minuscule gestures that translate into big-screen drama….It’s not hard to imagine that the little T4 robot — the plastic-resin puppet enlarged via digital video — has a heart.” – New York Times
