Figura. A short film about religious kitsch

It's white and windy all around. A gigantic figure emerges from behind the snow curtain and hits the road. 

It passes towns, villages, houses, to land on top of a hill, next to spiders, saints and bumper cars. 

FIGURE is a surreal tale about creating myths, about religious kitsch, and about the desire for greatness.
