Another great film from the French CG university Supinfocom. A Kaffa is the graduation project of Joan Baz, Lionel Caruana, Margaux Demont and Bastien Martin and deals with tyranny, megalomania and a people’s revolution.
Ruling a land based on a coffee plantation, a megalomanic leader is overcome by paranoia, as he predicts the future of his empire by reading the marks in his coffee cup. He is shadowed by an illusory second self that visits him, warning of an exterior threat. Succumbing to his alter ego, he builds a fort around his people who finally rise up against their ruler.
