Shadowplay

Today I would like to share with you a beautiful, poetic, extremely moving short film by Dan Blank.

In August of 1945, in a closing chapter of the second World War, a blinding flash lit the sky over Hiroshima. The places that were shielded from that searing light became permanent shadows on the city's walls and streets, while the city itself was decimated. "Shadowplay" is the story of Akio, a shadow of a young boy, who wanders the city searching for his family, while trying to make sense of the unfathomable atrocity.

That Happy Place

Do you have an imaginary place that you escape to when all around you is going insane? Well, my place would look something like this. Now if only I could make myself 1 inch tall.
