Gravitation (1996)

Original title: Gravitatsioon

Animation Duration 09:02

Young Udo has a burning desire to fly. However, he does not know that there is a law which keeps things on the ground and that one must let go of things in order to fly. The results can be disastrous for some. Flight is a dream, after all, which falls apart when it comes true.
Gravitation on the other hand is reality which in the end turns each flight into a fall. Young Udo reaches a new level through this painful understanding. Now he sees the world from another angle.

Director: Priit Tender
