‘To See Or Not To See’ by Bretislav Pojar

An amusing reflection on our habit of looking before we leap. What he shows us is the little person inside each of us, the cautious character we all know, who acts to keep us out of trouble but also in a state of defeat. The film show how to face up to your fears, how to make your worst fears look plain silly.
