The debut feature from writer-director J.B. Ghuman Jr., Spork is a colourful, foul-mouthed musical comedy about a frizzy-haired, 14-year-old hermaphrodite (the titular heroine) trying to navigate her way through the nightmare ordeal that is junior high school.
When a school dance competition provides a chance for Spork to prove herself and to show up Betsy Byotch and her gang of Britney Spears-obsessed mean girls, her streetwise fellow student and trailer-park neighbour, Tootsie, steps up to coach her with some ‘booty-poppin’ moves. If you like Napoleon Dynamite, Mean Girls and Welcome To The Dollhouse, you’ll love Spork!
A pop culturally savvy film about standing out and fitting in, Spork will have its UK premiere at this year’s BFI London Film Festival.
Already the winner of the Tribeca Film Festival’s inaugural Virtual category Video-On-Demand Award for Best Feature, Spork has been shortlisted for the BFI London Film Festival’s prestigious Sutherland Award which is presented to the director of the most original and imaginative first feature screening in the festival.
