CAPTAIN MORTEN AND THE SPIDER QUEEN
Ten-year-old Morten’s life isn’t exactly going smoothly. His father is at sea most of the time, so the languorous boy has to live with his strict Aunt Annabelle. When a broken pipe floods her café and a magic mishap shrinks Morten to the size of a bug, he becomes captain of his own little toy ship. With a quirky crew of insects, he embarks on an adventurous voyage through the deluge. But how will tiny Morten manage to return to normal size? To prevail in this exciting adventure, he must show great courage and cleverness, develop team spirit, and experience personal growth. An imaginative, surrealist stop-motion puppetry film.
