Hop The Fence
Blood and Glass
Busby Berkeley-inspired choreography meets “waacking”, a street dance popularized in gay clubs in 1970s LA, via sexy zombies in this horn-fuelled anthem to feminine strength.
Kaveh Nabatian has spent the last decade directing and shooting fiction films, music videos, television series, and feature-length documentaries all over the world: from Nunavut, Haiti, and South Africa, to New York and Montreal. Past collaborations include projects with Arcade Fire, The Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, Kimbra, LaLaLa Human Steps, Kahlil Joseph,The Barr Brothers, and Half Moon Run. He plays trumpet and gongoma in Juno award-winning band, Bell Orchestre.
With my Juno award-winning band, Bell Orchestre, I have released two records, toured everywhere from the Baltics to the Yukon, and collaborated with the likes of LaLaLa Human Steps and the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra. I also make music for film, dance, various ensembles, orchestra, and theatre with the immensely talented friends I’m lucky enough to have.
I am committed to exchanges with aspiring filmmakers in communities with limited infrastructure. I taught filmmaking at the Cine Institute in Haiti, where I continue to work and develop projects with Haitian filmmakers and writers, as well as in the Algonquin community of Kitigan Zibi.
I aspire to make films that have the immediacy of music, and to make music that has the evocative energy of film.
