Audio Tracks 

The main protagonist of The Gentle Giant is going to take part in a poetry contest. To gather up the courage to come out, he collects the memories from the entire life and fights his own demons. It's a film about one tiny step for mankind, one giant leap for a man.

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new program.
