Short Film Of The Day: Spike Jonze’s Stop-Motion Romance ‘Mourir Auprès de Toi’

Why Watch? It’s from Spike Jonze.

There’s no reason you should need to know more about it, but in case you’re curious, this inventive short film (which channels a few of the old Merry Melodies shorts set in libraries) was born out of a partnership between Jonze and artist/purse designer Olympia Le-Tan. With co-director Simon Cahn, Jonze tells the stop-motion story of a skeleton and a young woman from the covers of two famous novels, falling in love and getting into trouble.

Vibrant and sweet, it’s a must-see.

What does it cost? Just 7 minutes of your time.
