When Animals Dream: Arnby’s Feature Debut

Cannes Film Fest–When Animals Dream, which marks Arnby’s feature debut, tells the story of a teenage girl living in a small fishing town who discovers she’s a werewolf.

A mix between “Let the Right One In” and “Carrie,”  “When Animals Dream” toplines Sonia Suhl, Lars Mikkelsen and Sonja Richter.

Series artistic director Charles Tesson saw the film as a “Protestant horror film with a feminist twist.” “The main character is a heroine a la Dardennes brothers who is routinely being humiliated by machos at work. When she transforms into a warewolf, she’s finally able to avenge herself and her ill mother.”

The film has already pre-sold to some territories, including the U.S. with Radius-TWC.
