Synopsis:
Desmond and his friends have had enough.

That is, if he exists; because no one’s seen him.

Comments:
DESMOND & THE SWAMP BARBARIAN TRAP is the debut film by Magnus Carlsson and it is the first stop-motion animated feature film produced in Sweden. “My ambition was to make a film which parents could watch and laugh together with their children. I think we succeeded!” Carlsson explains.

Sprockets Toronto 2007:
Colourful characters, giggle-inducing plot twists and perfectly eye-popping animation make Desmond & the Swamp Barbarian Trap a treat for young children and adults alike.
