Peterchens Mondfahrt

Animation, AT/DE 2021, digital, 85 min, dF

To help the desperate maybug Sumsemann rescue his lost arm, the siblings Anna and Peter take a fantastical journey to the moon. Together with the Sandman and the capricious spirits of nature they thwart the grim plans of the insidious Man on the Moon. This modern adaptation of the eponymous well-known fairytale classic by Gerdt von Bassewitz is a magnificently animated film adventure for the entire family.
