Film Fest Gent - Flammable Children

"The film follows three families, as seen from the point of view of 14-year-old boy with a Super-8 camera, lots of enthusiasm but no subject to film. One comes along when a giant whale washes up at Nobbys Beach, the sunny seaside town he calls home. A crass and colorful comedy." (The Hollywood Reporter) 

"If you watched the gloriously 'Strayan trailer for the writer/director Stephan Elliott's 'Flammable Children', you might have assumed all the kooky bits were plucked out to make an outrageously cockeyed, slaphappy promo. I can assure you the actual film is 10 times as batshit crazy as the marketing materials suggest." (The Guardian)
