This October we visit the Laaktheater in The Hague, presenting the audience’s favourite film of last year: MY GRANDPA IS AN ALIEN. This Croatian-Slovenian film by Marina Andree Skop and Drazen Zarkovic, is a touching science fiction children’s film about friendship, love and family. Dutch subtitled.

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.
