Short Film of the Day: (Dis) Assembly

Why Watch? Because there are few things as powerful or unnatural.

Things to look for in this stark short include an attention to camera angles, and the concept of objects (and their destruction) as a window into human tragedy.

The less said the better, as the film does every ounce of the difficult work here, but this is a poetic example of where minimalism done right can tell a rich story without using words or character development.

What does it cost? Just 3 minutes of your time.
