Why Watch? Magically engaging and beautifully surreal, this short film from Martin Rosete begins with a narrator explaining that you’re an astronaut on an alien world with only a few minutes of oxygen left and an escape pod to get to. That sense of breathlessness pervades the story as the unreliable narrator changes his mind and changes it back again in search of a worthy metaphor for an important life moment.

It’s playful to the point of looking like a blockbuster from Wes Anderson. Plus, the technical side is handled with incredible care, delivering lung-filling visuals and sound cues that punctuate and nurture the strength of every story moment. With the right blend of silliness and profundity, it’s sublime in its short story perfection. Take a deep breath, and enjoy the adventure.

What Will It Cost? About 8 minutes.
