Immigration, Love and Music!
Lisa Limone is first S3D animated opera in stop-motion.
Topics of immigration, love and money are handled theatrically in musical sauce.
Target group for this 72-minute puppet opera is whole family – internationally recognized director, composer and animators assure that movie will give kids tons of fun in detailed puppet world and at the same time their parents can enjoy socially critical humor.
Main hero is a singing boat refugee – orange boy Maroc. He dreams about freedom.
Lemon girl Lisa collects singing seashells and dreams about love.
Lisa’s father is a businessman, owner of a ketchup factory and tomato plantation. He loves money.
And so the opera begins:
Poor Maroc escapes from his homeland and defying stormy waters take a boat across the sea to the “promised land”. Upon arrival he is forced being a slave worker in a tomato plantation instead of freedom, democracy, wealth and parties he had hoped for.
Despite of initial let down our orange boy is destined to gain happiness – selfish Lisa falls in love with him and sets him free. We see orange revolution – houses are blown up and tomatoes are made from ketchup, all in the name of democracy!
Movie that is full of rebellion and love has happy ending - we will see sour-sweet culmination of lemon girl's and orange boy's love.Creation techniques: ümarnukk/classical puppet
