In the Air (2009)

Original title: Õhus

Animation Duration 08:37

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.
