Why Watch? Because everything falls away in the face of your own death.
This student short film shows some of the pitfalls of student filmmaking, but it also displays a clever use of a gimmick, some impressive camerawork, and a mystery that unfolds into a greater story.
Told in reverse, a young man tries to tie up all of his loose ends before shuffling off his mortal coil. The words flashing over different parts of the story are a bit unnecessary, but overall, it’s a sci-fi-feeling drama without the science fiction that asks a question about what’s important in our own lives.
What does it cost? Just 4 minutes of your time.
