Too Tame

2D animation shortfilm
2017/ 6min
Direction: Rebecca Blöcher

Seven protagonists put in drawers are trapped in their stereotypes and their repetitive everyday life. Their individuality is only for show, because all too easily they let themselves be robbed of their self-determination – even when life is at stake. But the show must go on and cash is king. Applause!
