GERMANY, France, Georgia | 93 minutes | 2019

In a society peopled by abstract figures, a thousand people are encaged in a giant space, distinguished only by their social status, like a beehive. Their single aim is to produce light — but only one of them will succeed! 1000 Kings pushes animation into geometric abstraction in this poetically psychedelic meditation on the origins of the universe that nods to world mythologies.
WORLD PREMIERE

With the support ofGerman Films.
