“An animated short exploring group dynamics. How do we define ourselves when we are all equal? Who is steering the crowd? What if it is heading in the wrong direction? Where does the individual end and the group begin? What is done by choice, and what under duress?”

Premiered at Berlin (2019) and screened at over 150 film festivals, including Annecy, Animafest Zagreb, Anifilm, Dresden, Anima Mundi, GLAS, Clermont Ferrand, and BFI London Film Festival.
