Hugely imaginative, exquisitely crafted and endlessly thought provoking, This Magnificent Cake! is a stop motion animation marvel. Directors Emma de Swaef and Marc James Roels take puppet figures, props, fabric sets and their own astonishing creativity to build characters and worlds that feel entirely real. A five-part anthology features a troubled king, a failed businessman and an army deserter in stories that reflect the cruelty of 19th century colonialism in a way that is sardonic, surreal and blazingly original. 

Screening with the directors’ earlier short Oh, Willy... 

Easily one of the best films of the year.
