Spikbebis
BY
Max Andersson

The irrational turns of nightmare appear everyday in this dark story about the pinheaded baby, lord of a bizarre kingdom characteristic to Andersson´s aesthetics (filmed at the glasstower of the Lumafactory, Stockholm). The formal main-elements in this film are strong contrasts between light and shadow and heavy, suggestive music.
