In Animation, Best Films
By Martinus
From Estonia
Length: 8:37
Year 2009

“In a sophisticated, unexpected and humorus way this film tells a story of the impact the information society has on people today.”

- jury of FIA Stockholm 2010

“A television set attached to a small parachute falls through a glass ceiling and changes the way people live and let themselves be influenced. From the small magical screen, practically everything can be transferred until a wolf starts taking things into his own paws and changes the laws of gravity into something completely different. The Dadaistic style of mutual association creates a dream-like atmosphere of absurd humor.”

- Anifest, Teplice
