Tvestjärten / The Earwig
Feature film in development.
Prod: Grand Slam AB / Eliza Jones & Markus Waltå
The Earwig centres on the famous artist Timbo Landin and his adult daughter Shanna. One day during a live talk show Timbo gets confronted by the audience. He makes a fool of himself and and gets transformed into an human-sized earwig. His daughter Shanna witnesses the scandal on TV, feels deeply ashamed of her father and tries to distance herself from him. Their relationship is pushed to the edge during a hot summer on southern Gotland, when Timbo is fighting to keep contact with his daughter and Shanna is struggling hard not to be dragged into her father’s decay.
The Earwig has received development support from the Swedish Film Institute as one of the Wild Card projects 2020.
