Why Watch? If you’re a regular reader, you may have noticed that I’ve been focusing on the London Sci-Fi 48 Hour Film Challenge lately, and it’s because I’m obsessed with it. There are a heaping pile of 48 hour film challenges in the world, but few produce so many examples of professional-grade shorts.

The sci-fi slant also helps out.

This short from director Stefan Haselwimmer is soft light and piano music that hinges on the devastating smile of a young woman drinking a cup of tea. You’ll need to look for explanations in the film itself, but it’s more suggestive than overt, and the ending leaves questions (and a life) up in that piano key-filled air.

What Will It Cost? Just 4 minutes of your time.
