Storyline

On a journey to witness the final performance of a mythical musician thought long dead, a group of misfits navigate the barren terrain of a dystopian future, while constantly connected to the nihilistic DJ of radio station FNTN / Fonotune. Influenced by Japanese cinema, graphic design and Manga Comics, Fonotune: An Electric Fairytale is a film about strange encounters, lost connections and, maybe, the end of the world!

This is a piece of art
15 October 2018 | by Sakura_CyborgSee all my reviews

I watched this movie at the Sitges Film Festival in Spain and was blown away by it. Definitely one of my favourite movies that played at the festival. It was a very unique experience. Congratulations to the whole Fonotune team for making such a wonderful piece of art!
