Synopsis


“All at sea in a shoe.”

A young boy learns to take control over his life when he is shrunk to the size of an insect and has to sail his own toy boat through a flooded café. Morten has to be shrunk down before he can grow up. He builds a toy boat which he crews with insects. This is his escape from the unhappy world of the harbour café where he lives with his aunt Anna. When he is shrunk in a botched magic trick he finds himself sailing his own boat across the flooded café. The insect crew look uncannily like his aunt and the people she orders around. Morten has to reassess his relationships, save the crew from shipwreck and take control of his life.

Kaspar Jancis


Kaspar Jancis (1975, Tallinn) created his first moving pictures in the corners of his school notebooks. He has been a member of several rock groups, writing lyrics and music, and making arrangements. He enrolled at the Tallinn Pedagogical College in 1996. There, he completed his first films: the silent film Dr. Maisarve and the Matshalka Case (1996) and the cut-out puppet film Flight of the Little White Helicopter (1996), which screened at rock concerts and on television. In 1997, he transferred from the Pedagogical University to the Turku Arts Academy in Finland to study animation under the guidance of Priit Pärn. He made his debut film Romance (1999) in Turku.
