A SOLITARY WORLD: An Incredibly Beautiful Short Film From Bafta Winning Director James W. Griffiths [MUST SEE]

This isn’t just a haunting short flick by an award winning director that sucks in all the lonely restlessness that humankind feels when they empty their minds of all the superfluous crap, like status updates and consumerism, in order to find the actual core of who they are. No, this amazing pieces uses excerpts from the work of H.G. Wells in order bring that feeling to the surface and tell the tale of the supreme and chaotic recognition that we are all just a lost tribe searching for meaning in a world that doesn’t so much define you, as it leaves you blank for you to fill in the pieces.

Using passages from: The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr Moreau (1896), The First Men in the Moon (1901), In The Days of the Comet (1906) and The World Set Free (1914) along with a desolate score from Lennert Busch and narration by Terry Burns, A Solitary World is a beautiful and haunting composition that speaks to the shrivelled soul and sparks a desire to set oneself free…although, to be honest, that desire does fade from lack of use, so make sure that if you’re inspired after watching this, you act quickly.

Otherwise you’ll end up binge-watching Law and Order: SVU all day, accomplishing nothing.

Film after the break.
