At certain times in life, it can be tough to take the long view. Our short-term fears and perceived circumstances often take over, color our vision, and zap us of our strength. This animated film is a beautiful reminder that we must remain empowered and persevere, even when making decisions that make us fearful of the unknown. In this short film by Alexandro Novelli, the two characters of the peasant and the guardian are essentially the same character. The peasant represents our fear of the unknown, while the guardian represents our limiting and negative perceptions that keep us from going through the gates of opportunities that we encounter throughout our lives.
