Villainy (Coda) is a mythic and surreal journey through the liminal world of an anxious dreaming mind. This is the latest collaboration between award winning filmmaker/set designer Emil Agopian and acclaimed dancer Yukichi Hattori explores the fragility of the untouched when it is set in the sights of a villain. Lana Henchell and Akiko Tominaga's virtuosic rendition of an original piano duet by Juno-nominated composer Vincent Ho underscores the film.
