2021 Films: Mondo Domino

Mondo Domino by Suki
France (Milwaukee Premiere)

Running Time: 7 minutes
Screening Time: TBA

In a deafening noise of chainsaws, loggers happily humming as they cut down trees to be used as decor for a fashion show. A contemporary cartoon satire, in the form of a burlesque action musical tragi-comedy, leads us into a delirious whirlwind of chain reactions as chaotic as they are grotesque...

Director's Bio:

Born in 1977, Suki self-produced short films in the late 90s combining his cinematic vision with his taste for drawing. Creator of "The Dick Spader Investigations", selected at the Annecy and Ottawa festivals, Suki later directed an interactive comic for Nike, and followed in 2006, with "Reflections ", an animated thriller with an international career (Dresden, Brooklyn, Animamundi...) In 2012, produced by Papy3D, supported by the CNC and Pictanovo, "N'Djekoh" was selected for the Annecy festival in 2013 and was included in the program "The new faces of French animation", which toured Canada in 2014.

Since then, Suki has continued to develop projects such as "The Karl Paradigm" (finalist in the 2013 Audi Talents Awards), has adapted Rudolphe Toppfer's 1844 comic titled "The Story Of Albert", and has just finished an animated fable, "The Eel, the Weasel and the Vulture", produced by Utopi, an artistic cooperative, co-founded with Stéphane Debureau and Jean-Philippe Gréau.
