Short Film of the Day: A Short Film on Death

Why Watch? Because sometimes the most poetic thing is to place mortality right up against the camera lens. This short is composed of beautiful photography, featuring human faces from all age ranges mixed with the participants’ thoughts on life and death.

It’s calm, quiet but utterly meaningful. Hearing an old man talk about what it will be like to go while staring into the eyes of a child somehow creates drama and humor at the same time.

What Will It Cost? Just 10 minutes of your time.

Does it get better any better than that?
