Kõhkleja / Niezdecydowany / The Hesitator

A story about a wavering man who does not have to make decisions but can follow each opportunity along his way by splitting himself. Film is based on the short-story originally written by an Estonian author Mehis Heinsaar. The animation is drawn in a minimalist fashion with the focus on a dynamic black line in a white background. The textures in the film mirror the developments in the inner world of the main character that contrast with the depiction of the city. The surreal story gives a perspective on a world many of us have been dreaming of.
