Festival/markets LevelK

LevelK at Cannes 2021

The pre-Cannes market is approaching and we are excited to share some of our titles with you. 

CHECKERED NINJA 2 is the follow up to the highly successful animation CHECKERED NINJA, which broke box office records and sold to more than 50 territories. In this sequel Alex and the Checkered Ninja is yet again getting up to mischief and adventures, but this time far from home in exotic Thailand.

MARTYRS LANE is a British horror thriller, which ticks all the boxes in creepiness and intense drama. Being somewhat overlooked by her stressed mother and her father, the local pastor, Leah is left to her own company and imagination, but when she befriends a sweet but strange girl, her world is turned upside down, especially as Leah only gets visited during at night.

KARMALINK is a Cambodian sci-fi which follows a 13-year-old boy and his detective friend searching for a gold statue from the boy’s past lives, while navigating a high-tech, near-future Cambodia. The film deals with reincarnation, artificial consciousness, development and displacement of poor communities, and augmented reality.

HIVE (Sundance winner) centres on Fahrije who's husband has been missing since the war in Kosovo and therefore is not just saddened with grief, but is also struggling financially. In order to provide for her family she launches a small agricultural business, but in the traditional patriarchal village where she lives, her ambition and efforts to empower herself and other women are not seen as positive things.
