    Q+A with co-director Marc James Roels!

    World Premiering at Cannes before appearing at the Annecy, Toronto and Telluride Film Festivals, This Magnificent Cake is a surreal new stop-motion anthology film. Through intimate stories of interconnected characters--many of which rotate in and around a mysterious, luxury hotel in late 19th Century colonial Africa—a greater story about European colonialism emerges. At times wickedly humorous, and at others brutal the film is a fascinating exploration of a world both firmly placed in history but feels completely alien. If Lars Von Trier or David Lynch had the impetus to work with delicate wooly puppets they may have produced a similar cinematic project but the acclaimed directing duo Marc James Roels and Emma De Swaef have created something unique and unforgettable.
