Kibwe Tavares follows on from Robots of Brixton with another VFX laden mini-masterpiece, Jonah.
Pitched somewhere between Hemmingway’s The Old Man And The Sea, Moby Dick and Jonah and the whale (hence the name), Jonah is the tale of Mbwana and his best friend Juma, two young men with big dreams.
The distinct look of the film was developed in house at Kibwe’s production company Factory Fifteen, alongside the script, with a clear aim that the VFX wouldn’t be gratuitous, but all story-led and story driven. Read more about the development of Jonah in a Film4 interview with Kibwe here.
