Composer turned filmmaker Kurt Kuenne‘s short film Validation is “a fable about the magic of free parking.” Bones star TJ Thyne stars as Hugh Newman. Some of you might recognize Kurt as the director of one of this year’s best films — a heart wrenching documentary called Dear Zachary (if you haven’t seen it, don’t even read anything about it — just rent it — YOU NEED TO SEE IT). I was originally hesitant to include this short as part of /Film’s Big Directors Small Films series, as I’m afraid not enough people know who Kuenne is yet, but I’m sure thats about to change. Dear Zachary is probably one of this year’s best. Kuenne’s short won a bunch of awards at film festivals across the country. Thanks to /Film reader Andreas C for the tip.
