Penguins’ Parade

Estonia, 2002 (MIFF 2003, Animation)

Director: Riho Unt

Inspired by the filmmaker's visit to Phillip Island during MIFF 2001, Penguins' Parade is about a young man who, in an absurd situation, insists on remaining a human being. Is this really how overseas visitors see the penguins?
