Mascha Halberstad

Knor (6+) (Oink)

Kidsproof 72' - 2022 - Children - Dialogue: Flemish version
Director: Mascha Halberstad Composer: Rutger Reinders With: Jan Bijvoet, Maaike Cafmeyer, Titus De Voogdt, Jelle De Beule, Barbara Sarafian, Dominique Van Malder, Britt Valkenborghs, Thomas Cordie, Lize Verschoren, Jules Dorné

Mascha Halberstad's first stop-motion feature – the first ever from the Netherlands – contains as much charm as silicone poo, and puts an innocent piglet in the midst of a sausage competition. After Babe, Piglet and Gunda ... Meet Oink.

Oink tells the wonderful and exciting story of Babs and her pet pig Oink and the difficulties they must overcome in order to stay together. When 9-year-old Babs receives a pig named Oink as a present from her grandfather, she convinces her parents to let her keep it – on the condition that Oink follows a course in puppy training. But her parents are not the biggest threat to Oink, because her grandfather is secretly taking part in the sausage competition organized by The Society for Meat Products from Fresh Pigs…
"Mascha Halberstad's charming debut feature follows a young girl given a pet piglet by her grandfather. Oink is awash in colour, with outlandish characters sporting quirky outfits and offbeat hairdos, and exists in an utterly charming small town world." - The Hollywood Reporter
