DIFF365 WARMS AUDIENCES WITH CREATIVE LIGHT COMEDY

DIFF365@VOX powered by du once again brings UAE cinema fans one of the world’s top independent films. Following Andrew Rossi’s fashion-themed non-fiction “The FirstMonday in May”, the all-year around initiative lightens the mood with a cuddly comedy. “Brigsby Bear” is Saturday Night Live’s (SNL) Dave McCary’s debut feature starring his childhood friend and colleague at SNL, Kyle Mooney, along with famed voice and film actor Mark Hamill.

The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival where it was applauded for its insightful examination of the young generation’s obsession with pop culture and the deep feeling of loss that can occur when those formative pieces of entertainment are removed. Additionally, it was also chosen as 2017 Cannes Critics Week closing film.

Director Dave McCary and Kyle Mooney have been friends since high school where the duo founded Los Angeles-based sketch comedy group ‘Good Neighbour’ after their graduation, which due to its popularity led to them joining the renowned weekly-comedy sketch giant Saturday Night Live. Continuing the wealth of comedic talent, the quirky comedy is also produced by SNL-alum Andy Samberg’s Lonely Island trio alongside the writer-directors of The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

Brigsby Bear” revolves around James, a 25-year old man who spent his entire life with his parents in a bunker and grew up watching the TV series The Adventures of Brigsby Bear, an educational family program with a deep mythology. Taking audiences deep into the world of the underground bunker and, through unique design work, inside the heart of Brigsby’s adventure, they follow James as the show unexpectedly ends, leaving him facing a brave new world of without the Adventures to rely on.

Brigsby Bear” will screen exclusively to DIFF 365@VOX at the dedicated theatre (cinema 9) at VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates in Dubai from July 27th until August 9th 2017. Tickets are available online at the VOX website uae.voxcinemas.com and at the box office at VOX Cinemas Mall of the Emirates.
