The Festival du nouveau cinéma is proud to co-host the Canadian Premiere of ADAM GREEN'S ALADDIN, as part of the first edition of DISTORSION MTL.
DISTORSION and the FNC present ADAM GREEN'S ALADDIN on May 12th, 9pm @ Matahari Loft
You dreamed about it ? Adam Green achieved it ! The multi-facetted artist from Brooklyn (author, composer, sculpter, painter, director...) worked to adapt the hero of Arabian Nights...on his own terms.
In this retelling of the classic tale, Aladdin is an out of work indie-rock singer living in a video-game-world ruled by a perverted technology-obsessed Sultan. With the help of a magical genie named Mustafa and his 3D printer lamp, Aladdin gets lost and found again in a story about spiritual redemption in the Internet age.
Starring Macaulay Culkin, Natasha Lyonne, Adam Green, Alia Shawkat, Jack Dishel, Francesco Clemente, Bip Ling, Har Mar Superstar and Nicole LaLiberte.
