The Institute of The Dream (2006)

Original title: Une Instituut

Animation Duration 10:06

At bedtime, Sandman Mati's footprints appear from nowhere on the sand. The Master of Dreams spreads the dreamsand in co-operation with Pillow Katis onto piglet, gentelmen in black, the tumbler, a rabbit chasing hunter and on angel Tõnu. The Pillow Katis put dreampillows under every faller to make the falling asleep softer and safer as well.
Sandman Mati also catters dream sand onto the eyelids of a sleepless child.
