Passion Animation’s Kyra & Constantin have directed the Christmas spot for Austrian Banking group, Erste.

#EdgarsChristmas follows in the footsteps of Henry the Hedgehog (2018) and Hanna Bumblebee (2019), and tells the story of Edgar and Marie, an elderly man and a carer in a care home. Thanks to Marie’s kindness and persistence, Edgar reconnects to his passions and his past.
