Tales of a Toy Horse (2021, 72 min)
An intimate and poetic cinema verite with animated interludes reveals the philosophy of life of an old monk and artist, who for many years kept his monastic vow to find something good every day. Combining spiritual life with social activism since 2014, he takes multiple trips to deliver humanitarian aid to Donbas, where his vow is challenged by the war-torn reality. (Docpoint)
