Upside Down

Dace Rīdūze


A baby bat suddenly becomes active in the daytime. So much to see and experience on a spring day like this! When it gets injured, a family of mice nurse it back to health. Together, the two very different creatures explore the diversity of the world and learn a lot from each other. Sometimes the special thing about connections lies in recognising and experiencing differences. A short film that invites you to change your perspective.
