  4. Fact Sheet

Catch up with this quirky family on their high-speed adventure!

The creators of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Oscar for Best Animation Film in 2019) and the LEGO films this time lead us into a delirious epic with a dysfunctional family against the backdrop of an apocalyptic world!

The Mitchells vs The Machines explores the themes of what makes us unique and what makes us human beings in an increasingly technological world. The film combines 2 different animation styles: one that has a more illustrative approach and produces a hand-painted effect, while the other adopts the realism that we see in most CGI films nowadays...

Directed by Michael Rianda (Gravity Falls), the film was produced by Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Kurt Albrecht, starring the voices of Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Beck Bennett, Fred Armisen, Eric Andre and the Oscar-winning actress Olivia Colman.

Session followed by a live Q&A.
