Watch: ‘LIGHT’ Quickly Answers an Age-Old Question

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

Why Watch? How many short film directors does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Munir Alper Dogan‘s answers with minimalist charm. This is story at its least complicated – there’s a problem followed by a solution.

Although it ends with a great visual, the rest of the film does its best to create a sense of what’s going on even with overpowering darkness. It succeeds in varying degrees. Overall, it’s tough to understand why this particular moment has been captured in a movie, but maybe the answer lies somewhere in the stone-stillness of our hero at the opening or the blinded flash of surprise he shows at the end.

What will it cost you? Only 1 minute.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
