The life of a sea lion is pretty unfair. During mating season, the strong ones take ten females each, nine males have to cope without a partner. HOW TO BECOME A SEXUAL GIANT is a wildlife comedy. In an ironic way, it observes a colony of sea lions and tells the story of one of them: We follow him through the crude beauty of his birth, being fed by his mother, and being pushed away when the next new-born is due. His adolescent fi ght to define his place in life – and finally his efforts during mating season. In a fresh and funny way and with entertaining narration, the film draws comparisons and switches from the sex life of sea lions to our own manners of courtship and mating. Isn´t our life all about reproducing ourselves? What does us humans divide from mammals when it comes to love, sex and reproduction? Aren’t we all sea lions after all…?1
