Short Film Of The Day: Your Crooked Heart

Why Watch? Music meets visuals meets poetry meets heartache.

This short film works as a deconstruction of the moving parts of a movie. It is a blend of visuals, voice over and music that are far enough apart to show the sum of their parts, but tied closely enough to show how powerful their combination can be. Featuring the W.H. Auden poem “As I Walked Out One Evening,” and a couple navigating the bustling night-time streets of London with a symbolic fox in tow, it’s stirring non-narrative work that deserves applause.

What does it cost? Just 6 minutes of your time.
