CHIFF19: Captain Morten and the Spider Queen

“Nothing less than gorgeous.” — Cineuropa

Ten-year-old Morten spends his days building a toy ship and trying to avoid the ire of his reluctant guardian – a mean ex-ballerina named Anna – while his father is at sea. Morten hopes to one day be a Captain just like him. After a chance meeting with the inept magician Señor Cucaracha, Morten is magically shrunk down to the size of an insect and trapped aboard the deck of his own toy ship as the room around him floods! With a wicked Spider Queen and Scorpion Pirate already on board, being Captain is going to be harder than he ever imagined.
