Short Film of the Day: Diary

Why Watch? Director Tim Hetherington was killed yesterday while filming the violence taking place in Libya. The Oscar-nominated documentarian was no doubt bold in the face of danger, and his filmmaking belied that fact.

This short from Hetherington is a surreal attempt at capturing his personal experience of the places he’s been and distilling that into something completely non-objective. It’s a beautifully shot, fascinating film, and featuring it in Hetherington’s honor only seems fitting.

What Will It Cost? Just 19 minutes of your time.

Does it get better any better than that?
