For the first time in Motovun Film Festival history, a TV series will be shown on a festival big screen. It is "P’tit Quinquin", a mini-series by the acclaimed filmmaker Bruno Dumont. MFF will be showing it in cooperation with this year's partner country – France. Finding a dead cow in a World War II bunker triggers the bizarre plot of this witty crime story full of peculiar characters and absurd situations. Although originally made in TV format and in four episodes, the series was shown at numerous international festivals (including Cannes) in its integral running time of 197 minutes. P’tit Quinquin can be compared with "Twin Peaks". It has revealed the tragicomic side of the great French director.
Bruno Dumont won Grand Prix in Cannes for his two films, "Humanité" and "Flandres". Motovun audience knows him by his drama "Hadewijch", shown at the 12th edition of the festival in 2010.
