Directed by Kuan-Fu Lin
Canadian Premiere. A fantasy satire film about how fear drives a nice guy into a judgemental person against his new neighbours, the Frenchy family – they are human with heads like French Bulldogs.
Kuan-Fu Lin, from Taiwan, is the son of two soldiers. His nickname, “FT,” comes from comic books, which are a major influence on his work. Growing up through a rough childhood, Kuan-Fu found solace in comic books as he struggled with school, hoping to one day become a hero like those in his stories. As he came to find a keen interest in monsters as well, Kuan-Fu went on to develop comic fantasies with his own brand of social commentary.
Writers: Kuan-Fu Lin, Sam McGoldrick
