Wave Twisters is a rump-shaking, groove-making highlight of the Festival. This visual and musical event is an eye-popping, hip-hop meets Hanna Barbera, animated adventure synched skratch-for-skratch with DJ Q-Berfs turntable masterpiece of the same name. The story: The Inner Space Dental Commander, must fulfill his destiny by reviving 'the lost arts', the four pillars of hip hop culture: breakdancing, rapping, graffiti and skratching. He and his posse—the mischievous medical droid, Rubbish; his lovely assistant Honey: and B-Boy Grandpa, the last surviving link to a bygone era where the arts flourished— must battle their way through an increasingly surreal collection of villains and booby traps. Among the villains is an elite corps of turntable warriors—played by key members of the Invisible Skratch Piklz Q-Bert Yogafrog, D-Styles and DJ Flare—whose electrifying performances blaze a path of destruction. Wave Twisters is a film that brilliantly fuses sound and image into a hyper-charged spectacle of cinematic and symphonic ecstasy.
