My Embarrassing Family & the Spanish Slugs

Stefan Fjeldmark, Denmark, 2010

60 min.DK/Short fictionChildren's films, Animation

Sille is an ordinary girl, 12 years old and 364 days, pre-teenager with adhesive hearts on the pink laptop, ambitions of becoming a pop star, two chick girlfriends with whom she's practising MGP, a couple of nice parents and a little brother. And then there's juuuust a garden full of Spanish slugs. Well, it's the kind of year when 'Spanish slug epidemic', beer traps, salt and boiling water is on everybody's lips.

The door opens and a new, different, dark and mysterious guy steps into the class. His name is Edge. Edge makes rap music and he is 'street' totally different than the rest of the boys in class. Sille feels a vague disquiet and change. It finds its way into her musical compositions. "What's happening to me?"

And then she turns 13!
