A childless couple decide to raise a voracious tree stump as a substitute for the child they long for but cannot have. When 'Otik' comes to life he develops a lethal appetite. Based on a classic Czech fairy tale transferred to contemporary Prague, this is a dark and dream-like satire on parenting and competition.
There will be a post-screening panel and discussion upstairs at Circus Circus with:
Leslie Ironside: Child and adolescent psychotherapist
Dr Miles Leeson: Associate Lecturer in English at the University of Chichester and Associate of the Sussex Centre for Folklore, Fairy Tales and Fantasy.
Jenny Leeburn: Psychotherapist and Chair and co-ordinator of the PS Arts Forum.
