Editor’s Note: Today’s entry is done in support of Filminute, a really cool online festival that lets filmmakers tell their stories in 60 seconds or less. It’s the first of seven, so keep an eye out.

Why Watch? A camera floats through a nursing home following a nurse carrying a tray while a narrator explains the bullet points of his life. Hol vs Rus is an enigmatic title until the film’s punchline – which acts as a sort of anti-pretension antidote to the ephemeral nature of the rest of the (minute-long) runtime. It’s a wink during existential pondering.

It’s airy, but ultimately a delightful bite of what might be a larger tale; it could very well be the opening to a lost, Russian Wes Anderson film.  Plus, the visual approach – while simple – is a refreshing use of misdirection.

What will it cost you? Only 1 minute.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
