Fresh from Cannes, Toronto and the Telluride film festivals, comes a stop-motion film unlike any you've seen before: THIS MAGNIFICENT CAKE! This mid-length feature from directing team Marc James Roels and Emma de Swaef offers a stunning surrealist vision and scathing critique of Belgian imperialism in the Congo.

To round out the mid-length run time, we have built a special 75 minute program with shorts hand-picked by the filmmakers.

This program includes:
THE BURDEN (2017), Niki Lindroth von Bahr, 14 minutes
THIS MAGNIFICENT CAKE! (2018), Marc James Roels & Emma de Swaef, 44 minutes
OH WILLY ... (2012), Marc James Roels & Emma de Swaef, 17 minutes
