Los Angeles, CA – March 2, 2021 – What do Alien cats, witches, snakes and tattooed millennials have in common?
Rock Salt Releasing will screen the Annecy festival hit, LAVA, from Argentinean director/actor, Ayar Blasco (El sol, La Vagancia) at this week’s virtual EFM, learned Variety exclusively.
This comes prior to Rock Salt Releasing’s U.S. release date on March 15th on major digital streaming platforms, with pre-releases launched on Feb. 22nd.
Based on the script by Salvador Sanz and written alongside Ayar Blasco and Nicolás Britos, LAVA is a comedic adult animation featuring the English voice over from Primetime Emmy award-nominated actress / comedian, Janeane Garofalo, best known for TV series BoJack Horseman, Wet Hot American Summer (2001) and Ratatouille (2007).
LAVA follows Débora, a lonely and disenfranchised tattoo artist who endeavors to save herself and her town from an alien invasion. The aliens come in the form of large cats, cackling witches, and never-ending snakes; what’s more, these dangerous invaders have harnessed the media as a means to hypnotize humanity into submission. Débora must learn to resist their control and convince others to do the same.
