Spork is possibly one of the funniest movies that have ever been screened at FIRE!!. Unconventional and foul-mouthed, this independent musical comedy tells the story of a freaky and marginal teenager. She’s a clumsy high-school student lost between her genre identity—she’s intersex—and the general stupidity that surrounds her at school, where she’s constantly bullied, something she overcomes with an enthusiasm fuelled by music and sport.

This colourful and tender comedy is wild but profound, and it offers a top-level soundtrack and a visual style that make it unmissable. Just like its main character, the film is funny, moving and full of talent and tenderness. Delicious chewing gum in a pop style.
