Following their acclaimed rescores for The Straight Story and Belleville Rendezvous, which toured the UK's PictureHouse cinema circuit to sell-out performances, Bristol-based musicians Animat return to the Roxy to premiere their latest live music & DJ rescore project.
Tuvalu is the 1999 award-winning dark comedy from German director Veit Helmer, which remains sadly unreleased in the UK despite winning numerous awards in Europe and the USA. Set in a dilapidated swimming baths and fuelled by dreams of escape to a tropical paradise, the film is an inspired, quirky and stylish tale which sits somewhere in the tradition of Marc Caro's 'Delicatessen' and Kusturica's 'Black Cat, White Cat'.
Animat have developed a new soundtrack to the film which they perform live incorporating sound and dialogue from the film together with a mixture of their own original brand of dubby downtempo and an eclectic selection of tracks from their DJ archive.
A rare chance to see this magical film, and a one-off London performance of the live rescore!
