Shorts – EFA-nominated European Shorts

George Takei narrates this multi-award-winning fable about a wise squirrel on an increasingly existential quest to find its scarf. The film sets out on an misadventurous route to answering four common human fears. Presented in order they are - fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of rejection and finally the fear of death, which is comically blow out of proportion to include the entire universe. For each fear both sides of an argument are presented, but visually no real resolution is delivered. This allows the audience to form their own conclusion for each argument.
