MY GRANDPA IS AN ALIEN
An extraordinary adventure of a girl and a robot on a mission to save her partly alien family. An inventive sci-fi children’s film that parents will enjoy too. Winner of the Golden Arenas for Best Visual Effects and Best Cinematography at the Pula Film festival.
In a single moment, Una’s entire life is turned upside down; the girl’s grandpa is kidnapped by aliens and her mum collapses and ends up in a hospital. Left alone in the house, Una discovers that her grandpa is an alien himself. His spaceship hit the planet some time ago, and its pilot, a little grumpy robot, still remains! Una and the robot have less than 24 hours to find and rescue her grandpa. Their mission leads to a new friendship. The rational robotic logic gets replaced by emotions, and Una’s selfless love ultimately saves her partly alien family.
