Men & Chicken
Filmfest 2015

This black comedy revolves around two weirdo brothers, Elias and Gabriel. Upon their father’s passing, the two brothers, who are not at all fond of each other, discover in their father’s videotaped will that they are adopted. Despite their disagreements, Elias and Gabriel decide to seek out their natural father and set out for the island where he lives. A most unusual surprise awaits them there. Surrounded by the island’s many oddball inhabitants, Elias and Gabriel discover a paralysing, yet liberating truth about themselves and their family.
