Animation film “The Master” by Riho Unt, 2015 (EST) 18 min, no dialogue

Popi the dog and Huhuu the monkey always wait for their master to come home at the end of the day. This time he does not arrive and the pets are left all alone. Popi, albeit smarter and stronger, surrenders to the monkey’s silly whims, thus symbolising obedience and submissiveness. Contrarily, Huhuu epitomises foolishness and yet manages to adopt the role of the new master.

Based on a short story by Friedebert Tuglas.
