In a world struck by a wave of mutations that slowly transform some people into animals, François does everything in his power to save his wife, who is affected by this mysterious condition. As some of the creatures vanish into a nearby forest, he embarks on a quest alongside Émile, their 16-year-old son, that will forever alter their lives.
The yearly Sprouts Film Festival, which had its origin at Studio/K in 2022, showcases cinema of the future by focussing on socially critical debut films, and ecocinema; films with a strong environmental focus. Under the banner of Sprouts OFFSPRING we highlight films that could have been included in the festival selection, but were given a regular Dutch release instead. We at Studio/K strongly believe in the power of these imaginative fiction films to disrupt the status quo. The festival’s third edition will be held May 7-12 2024 at Studio/K and MACA | Moving Arts Centre Amsterdam. Want to know more? sproutsfilmfestival.com
