Kibwe Tavares

Put festival revellers as his backdrop to a love story about a robot pop princess and a scarecrow. Turned an island in East Africa into a dystopian tourist trap after the sighting of a giant leaping fish. Challenged you to keep up the pace with his carnival of self-expression for Guinness. Assembled an army of young female footballers to inspire others to take up the sport.

Sundance-winning Kibwe combines his training as an architect with his love of storytelling and animation to create futuristic 3D animated and live action films. He crafts detailed, vivid and kinetic worlds that have social and political depth.
