Description

2019 PROVIDENCE FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL
Presented by Brown University and The Providence Center for Media Culture at the Granoff Center for the Arts

MFKZ

Director: Guillaume Renard & Shojiro Nishimi

Starring: Chris Jai Alex

Run time: 94 minutes

A genre-mashup MFKZ is the collaboration of French comic artist Guillaume “Run” Renard and ultra-hip Japanese animation house Studio 4°C. The film centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinz, who live in a seedy tenement in an LA-inspired dystopian metropolis called Dark Meat City. Following a scooter accident Angelino starts experiencing migraines and strange hallucinations, as well as fits of rage-inspired superpowers, as he slowly awakens to the truth of his origins: he is half-human and half-Macho, a supernatural alien race that is bent on taking over the planet.

Animation

Dark Meat City. Le livreur de pizzas Angelino squatte une chambre minable avec son coloc Vinz et une armada de cafards. À la suite d’un accident de scooter, où il croise la divine Luna, il commence à souffrir de maux de tête et d'hallucinations. Des hallucinations ? Hmm, peut-être pas... Pourchassé par des hommes en noir, Angelino n’a plus aucun doute : il est pris pour cible. Mais pourquoi lui ?
