The earnest, passionate affection shared between handsome Jung and beautiful Maria, as they gaze across the idyllic vista before them, is a love that nothing can tear asunder. Nothing except a sudden, overwhelming onslaught of screaming demon skull-missiles, laying waste to the lover’s gentle paradise. In their wake is a world transformed – devastated, desecrated, dominated by the terrifying titan Little Jesus. The greatest horror comes as Little Jesus casually plucks Maria’s head off, shattering the helpless Jung’s heart. Cast into a chaotic realm of polymorphous perversities and unrestrained violence, Jung must confront all manner of monstrosities – and the truths within himself – if he is ever to reunite with his love.

“An animation studio in Paris full of depressive, beautiful, fucked-up people making cartoons for depressive, beautiful, fucked-up people.” That’s how renegade newcomers Bobbypills describe themselves. We’d add that their adult-oriented web series, found exclusively on the Blackpills app, fuse the flavours of Japanese anime and the Euro-American underground – and crank the intensity to 11. Following their gloriously sleazy debut series VERMIN and the raunchy sex-ed exercise PEEPOODO & THE SUPER FUCK FRIENDS (“for children over 18”), Bobbypills will soon unleash Baptiste Gaubert and Jérémie Hoarau’s psychosexual odyssey CRISIS JUNG, a tale of broken hearts, bent minds and bashed-out brains in a ravaged, savaged, sexed-up futureworld. Fantasia’s international premiere of CRISIS JUNG, assembled in its entirety as a feature film in lustrous 4K, marks a very rare opportunity to see this mobile-bound maelstrom of metaphysical mayhem and libidinal lunacy towering on the big screen. – Rupert Bottenberg
