Why Watch? Because we should challenge how we define a film.

Most of the shorts featured in this column are either easy to spot as stories or completely experimental. Even when a documentary short is in the spotlight, it tells a clear tale of people doing things. This short, is none of those things.

Stuxnet: Anatomy of a Computer Virus is an informational film made entirely of voice over narration and motion graphics. It’s distilled knowledge about a new weapon that might be threatening a governmental computer near you, but it raises the same questions that all documentaries do. How accurate is it? How well can we trust the information? Isn’t it delivered in a sleek and shiny enough way that we buy it wholesale?

It’s beautiful, compelling, and it does tell a story, but it’s nothing like most short films.

What does it cost? Just 10 minutes of your time.

Check out Stuxnet: Anatomy of a Computer Virus for yourself:
