The Inventor – The Kilkenny Premiere Screening followed by Q&A with Director Jim Capobianco

Join director, Jim Capobianco, supervising sound editor, Aza Hand, for this special screening of The Inventor.

Directed and written by Jim Capobianco (the Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter of “Ratatouille”) and co-directed by Pierre-Luc Granjon, THE INVENTOR is a stop-motion adventure film about the life of Leonardo da Vinci featuring the voices of Stephen Fry, Daisy Ridley, Marion Cotillard, Gauthier Battoue, and Matt Berry.

The insatiably curious and headstrong inventor/artist Leonardo da Vinci (Fry) leaves Italy to join the French court where he can freely experiment, invent flying contraptions and incredible machines, and study the human body. Joined in his adventure by the audacious Princess Marguerite (Ridley), Leonardo attempts to uncover the answer to the ultimate question: “What is the meaning of life?”

The screening will be followed by a live Q&A session with Jim Capobianco, Aza Hand and Nicolas Flory, moderated by Fabian Erlinghäuser (Cartoon Saloon).
