Chameleon/Cameleon

Canada, 1984 (MIFF 1986)

Director: Stefan Anastasiu

Animated allegory about fear — the fear to take a stand. A man hoists himself up a tree, squats on a branch and watches the world go by. Occasionally he is tempted to climb down and join the dissenters, but he doesn't, until one day.
