The Exploits of Moominpappa
[Muminpappans bravader – En ung Mumins äventyr], directed by Ira Carpelan, Finland / Poland 2021, 74'
- In a distant land lies the Moominvalley, an enchanting place full of mysteries. Peaceful evenings are a perfect scenery for incredible stories from the past, and Moominpappa has quite a few of them. He, too, was once a little Moomin and you wouldn’t believe what he was up to!
- A flying ship, a ball at the king’s house, sea voyages… Did young Moominpappa fulfil his dreams and become a real adventurer? Lonely wanderings, the mysterious Groke and the underwater world are just the beginning of the story! Young Moominpappa takes us back to his adventurous childhood, discovers new, extraordinary lands, and meets wonderful friends along the way. Are we sure this is the same calm and serious Moominpappa?
- The Exploits of Moominpappa is a Polish co-production based on Tove Jansson’s books. A sentimental treat for the slightly older ones and something completely different for young viewers, who can get to know the Moomins.
