The Febris (1997)

Original title: Febris

Feature film | Drama Duration 45:00

Film director Andres Puustusmaa has advised the audience to watch his film as a plotless poem composed by colours. The sketch full of fantasy is based on Pär Lagerkvist's novel "The Dwarf", telling about the dwarf hidden in a human soul. The dwarf as the embodiment of perversion is fed by estrangement, envy, narrow-mindedness, violence and the passion of manipulation. A human being starts to seek for salvation only when chaos has broken out.
