SATELLITE GIRL AND MILK COW
First show: August 03
“Whimsical and Fantasical” -Derek Smith, Slant Magazine
From award-winning director Chang Hyung-yun comes an exultingly outrageous, comic sci-fi romance unlike anything before it.
A satellite, having spent 20 years in space, free-falls through the sky and crash lands on earth, turning into a girl, complete with Astro Boy-like rocket shoes and weapon limbs. A music-playing milk cow reminisces about his past as a human being with a broken heart and musical aspirations. A wizard, eager to help the pair out but restricted since he was transformed into a roll of toilet paper (complete with embossed, magical sheets), is desperate to find a way to break their curses. This bizarre trio of unlikely heroes must face up to the ensuing menace of an incinerating machine and a witch with her pet ‘snouts’. Satellite Girl and Milk Cow is a kooky animated love story whose off-beat sense of humor and sheer exuberance deserves to be seen.
