Nukufilm claymation short film 'Teofrastus' to premiere on Tuesday ({{commentsTotal}})

Nukufilm Studios' latest short film, the claymation "Teofrastus," premieres in Tallinn at Cinema Sõprus on Tuesday.

Set in Estonia in the 1980s, the film is based on the Astrid Reinla book by the same name.

"Teofrastus" is the story of a cat who needs the help of compassionate people to find home. Through his experiences, the film touches on topics including freedom, compassion, and the search for one's own home and place in the world.

It is suitable for adults and children of all ages alike.

It took 80kg of modelling clay and seven months of filming alone at a rate of seven seconds of footage per day to make. The 16-minute film took a total of three years to produce, however.
