During our last Incu Thursday we announced that the animation film Midori-Ko is gonna screen at Incubate 2012. Now we like to give you some extra information behind this movie and Keita Kurosaka, the creator .
Keita Kurosaka is a very talented illustrator and experimental filmmaker from Japan, who has been exhibiting his work since the early 80′s. He has spent 13 years making this film, which will screen at our festival. He made 30.000 drawings completely by himself for this hand-drawn animated film. His style is described by critics as “very painterly, grotesque and surreal”.
Midori-Ko is a dark sci-fi tale; the 21st century Tokyo is depicted as a city at the edge of apocalyps. A big food crisis is coming. 5 scientists try to develop a ‘dream food’, both meat and vegetable. But when they succeed in making this animal/vegetable hybrid thats named ‘Midori-Ko’, the food has no intention of being eaten and flies away. To give you more of an image how that looks like make sure that you’ll check the trailer of this film.
