Event description

Description

Twelve-hundred years in the future, humanity has achieved near-immortality through genetic engineering. But the gleaming civilization on the Earth's surface holds a secret: that engineered longevity has left the species infertile, and the end is in sight. The only hope is to explore deep underground, where the misshapen remnants of long-abandoned clones may hold the secrets of reproduction in their mutated DNA.

Eight years in the making, Takahide Hori's JUNK HEAD is a darkly fascinating sci-fi world, lovingly crafted in stop-motion splendour. Written, directed, animated, scored and voiced by Hori, it presents a world that's equal parts H.R. Giger and Fraggle Rock, an alternately whimsical and horrifying place where towering machines and nightmarish creatures share space with mad scientists and oddball industrial drones.

With an eye for details large and small, Hori makes his miniature worlds feel epic in scale without sacrificing the small moments that are essential to making science fiction memorable. A favourite at both Fantastic Fest and Fantasia, JUNK HEAD is testament to the power of independent animation to bring unique visions to charmingly horrifying life.
