The Overcoat

Based on the classic short story by Nikolai Gogol, The Overcoat tells the story of a lonely office clerk in St Petersburg who wishes for a new coat in order to fit in with his friends, only for fate to take a ghostly hand…

A collaboration with AFilm Estonia, and made with a combination of both traditional hand drawn animation and modern CG techniques, The Overcoat is a warm family film with an important central message about empathy and understanding.
