Mon. March 13, 6pm & Sun. March 19, 12:45pm | Paprika Steen (whose directorial debut, AFTERMATH, premiered at CEUFF 2005) returns to the festival with her fourth feature, an uproarious comedy that will resonate with any parent who has navigated the rivalries and hidden agendas of school boards and parent groups – and the obligatory adult relationships we forge for the wellbeing of our children. Husband and wife Piv and Ulrik are determined to earn a place in the coveted parent group of their daughter’s new class. Invited to the popular annual camping trip, they arrive intent on making a good impression but soon discover that the grown ups they want to win over behave more like naughty children.
