GIFFONI EXPERIENCE 2016 - 15.24 July

Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2016

Fungus is a Bogeyman, creatures who spend their lives venturing out of Bogeydom and heading ‘Up Top’ where they pass the time wreaking havoc in Drycleaner (or human) homes. At dawn he returns satisfied in his smelly underground house, to his wife Mildew and his son Mould. This reassuring routine is suddenly interrupted when Mould escapes to the up top world": actually the boy wants to become human and live ‘up top’. Fungus and Mildew are forced to leave Bogeydom and assume a human aspect to find their son. The impact with the Drycleaners world is traumatic, but, thanks to a friendly human, the three will live in a house, trying to adapt to the new life.
