ADAM GREEN’S ALADDIN
Adam Green’s Aladdin, a hyper-sensory, poetic and humorously subversive take on the Classic Arabian Nights tale, written and directed by Green. The feature film will further explore the recesses of Adam’s symbolic imagination, playing like an Alejandro Jodorowsky version of Aladdin on handmade sets à la “The Science of Sleep”; with frenetic dialogue at the pace of Xavier Renegade Angel or South Park.
The movie features a brand new soundtrack album composed and recorded by Green, who will be kicking off a worldwide ‘Aladdin Tour’ concurrent with the film and album’s release in May 2016.
The film is a modern day version of Aladdin, with Green starring as the titular character, and explores the recesses of Green’s symbolic imagination wherein the lamp is a 3-D printer, the princess is a decadent socialite, the planet gets a sex-change and its population prints out an analogue version of the Internet.
In the months following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Adam’s focus was on pre-production in a 6000-square foot warehouse in Redhook, Brooklyn, where he and a small crew made 350 papier mache props and 33 hand-made sets!
The cast includes acclaimed actors Macaulay Culkin, Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) and Natasha Lyonne (Orange Is The New Black), celebrated NY musicians, Adam Green, Dev Hynes, Devendra Banhart, Har Mar Superstar, Andrew VanWyngarden (MGMT), as well as renowned artist Francesco Clemente.
