Sophie Koko Gate

Sophie Koko Gate is an artist, animation director and writer based in South London. In her films, the human condition is examined through the lens of desire. Rare moments of pleasure are interrupted by frustration, a longing for something that is never quite resolved. A recurring cast of eccentric characters live on behind the scenes, aging and shapeshifting as they move between parallel worlds in each film. Her work has been screened at Whitechapel Gallery, Tate Modern, Edinburgh Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival and she has won awards at Ottawa Animation Festival, SXSW, GLAS Animation Festival and Indie Lisboa. She is currently developing an animated series with Sony Pictures Animation and Adult Swim and touring her solo exhibition ‘Milk Bath’.
