Fiddlesticks and The Teeny-Weeny Fox

Part of Rural Route Film Festival
Saturday, July 30, 2016, 4:00 p.m.

Dir. Veit Helmer. 2014, 80 mins. Digital projection. In German with English subtitles. With Pieter Budak, Nora Börner, Benno Fürmann. Director Veit Helmer (Baiknor) brings us another wild, well-crafted feature with Fiddlesticks, an all-ages movie starring a group of rambunctious German children and their ingenious pet coati (raccoon). In this zany Little Rascals-inspired film, the Coati Gang lives in Bollersdorf, a village that prides itself in being the most average place in the world. When a greedy and manipulative consumer studies company tests new laboratory-created food products in their town, the kids spring into action. They plot to free their eccentric grandparents from a nursing home, and then set out to break a series of world records (including making the world’s largest milkshake in a swimming pool). Preceded by The Teeny-Weeny Fox (dirs. Aline Quertain, Sylwia Szkiladz. 2015, 8 mins. Digital projection) about a tiny fox who meets a little girl who grows giant plants. Recommended for ages 8+.
