Animator Alessandra Novelli’s take on of the parable ‘Before the Law’ from Franz Kafka’s The Trial. To wit:

Peasant and Guardian are the same character, the peasant, like each one of us, in front of his own fear; the guardian, something shapeless, that surrounds and controls him – the Door/Gate the possibilities we encounter during our life.
