Directed by Steven de Beul, Ben Tesseur & Jeff Tudor

An innovative family film, Coppelia combines animation and live action dance in a modern retelling of the love story between Swan and Franz, jeopardised by Dr. Coppelius and his uncannily beautiful protégée Coppelia.

This unconventional, dialogue-free adaptation blends musical influences from classical to electronic, and sees Dr. Coppelius reimagined as a cosmetic surgeon, whose lure of superficial beauty poisons the town. Swan must uncover the truth about the popular newcomer who puts her community in danger. While the townspeople must learn that in an increasingly image-conscious culture, it’s never been more important to be yourself.
