Eini is growing up alone with her strict, violent father in a house in the woods. He is scared of the world and convinces her that everything out there is evil, especially sexuality. Isolated from society and at the mercy of her father’s violence, Eini begins to imagine she is living the life of her flamboyant grandmother. Her escape into fantasy gives the 13-year old the strength she needs to survive her ordeal. Granny’s Dancing on The Table is a dark, poetic story with a fascinating mix of stop-motion animation and realistic sequences.


Hanna Sköld (*1977) is known for her unconventional, independently produced and distributed films. Her debut Nasty Old People (2009) could be downloaded for free from the Internet. Granny’s Dancing on The Table was financed by crowd-funding.
