Short Film of the Day: Everything Will Be OK

Why Watch? Because Don Hertzfeldt is a genius. For those who haven’t been indoctrinated into his mad world, this short is a great introduction. For those that have, here’s just another excuse to watch it again.

Hertzfeldt has an uncanny ability to make his stick figure drawings say more about our lives than the poets of the world can ever dream of doing. Funny, existential, meaty – this short (like all his others) delivers the humor and intense meaning of everyday life. Bill walks through his life experiencing the unexpected, wondering about wondering, and pretending not to notice that everything around him is changing while grabbing the produce from the back of the stack.

What Will It Cost? Just 17 minutes of your time.
