    Flea is a tough city cookie who never complains. But her mother’s abusive partner is more than even she can handle.

  • The Chickening Odrůbežení / The Chickening
    Directed by: Davy Force, Nick DenBoer
    Canada, USA, 2015, 5 min

    What would Stanley Kubrick’s legendary film The Shining look like if it were re-worked by a bunch of crazy fans? They’d turn the secluded hotel into a fast-food haven, the macabre little Grady sisters would do a spot of break dancing, and Jack Nicholson would morph into a piece of chicken. The menu also includes refills of looney humor and an extra portion of unbridled animation.

    Relationships between fathers and sons aren’t always idyllic. Jay, 14, knows only too well how difficult it is to win his dad’s approval.

In fairy tales it’s known as the Whopper, but an encounter with this creature needn’t necessarily have a fairy-tale ending. Karel tries to track it down, but the Whopper is closer than he thinks. There’s a strange bond between the mysterious being and Karel’s daughter, Anička. There can only be one lord of the forest. Who’s it going to be?

    A foreign woman in a burqa goes with her young son to a Copenhagen police station to file a complaint against her abusive husband, but the translator assigned to her seems unwilling to convey the true meaning of her words.
