A co-production with Imagine Pictures, Joern Utkilen’s thought- provoking take on an old fairy tale was made for Film 4 and the UKFC under the Cinema Extreme banner. It played at over 20 festivals worldwide including Palm Springs and Rotterdam, and received a Special Mention at Cork and Regensburger, and a best screenplay award at Grimstad in Norway. It was also nominated for a Scottish Bafta in the best short film category, and was sold to Arte in Germany and Canal + in France.
