ABOUT

Financed by  MINC's "Curta Criança", Nham-Nham: The Creature debuted at the 14th Children's Film Festival in Florianópolis in 2015, where it received the Children's Special Prize (Best Film). Many exhibitions in several film festivals in Brazil and in the World followed as in the Primeiro Plano Festival of Juiz de Fora / MG where it also received the Best Film Prize by popular jury and also at the International Young Audience Film Festival Ale Kino in Poland and in the International Festival of Short Films of SP (Kinoforum). The film followed a festival career in 2016, attending the International Children Film Festival in Lucknow, India.

"Nham-Nham" treats in a fun way a complex but common theme inherent in all: growing up. Through the eyes of boy Lucas and his fantastic universe, the film reveals itself differently according to its audience: children interpret the film as a fable about monsters and adults see the memory of the loss of innocence.

SYNOPSIS

One night, Lucas hears a strange noise coming from his closet. Nham-Nham, a disguised plush bear, comes out:  "I'm hungry," the creature says. Nham-Nham eagerly wants the drawings that Lucas does in his diary, scribbling what happens in his day to day. What Lucas did not expect is that whenever his new friend eats the delicious leaves of his diary, the memories drawn there are erased from his memory. So, Lucas goes to erase everything he wants to forget, letting Nham-Nhan devour his drawings / thoughts. However, deleting memories can be dangerous. Lucas decides: It's time to end Nham-Nham.
