Mad God

Mad God

62nd TIFF: Greek Premiere

An experimental stop-motion film set in a world of monsters, mad scientists, and war pigs. Conceived and directed by legendary visual effects and stop-motion craftsman Phil Tippett (whose combined credits include, among others, Apocalypse Now and Star Wars), all sets, creatures, and environments were handcrafted over the course of three decades! A mature film made with technology that spans the history of cinema – a literal trip down the rabbit hole, revealing the connection between creativity and madness with fun and awe.
