I was browsing Reddit this morning when I came across the following description for the short film Skhizein:
After being struck by a 150-ton meteorite, Henry has to adapt to living precisely 91 centimeters from himself.
That description didn’t make much sense to me, but, finding myself incredibly intrigued, I watched the 13-minute short and was completely blown away. From the concept to execution, this short film is beautiful, haunting, and thought-provoking. I would talk more about the premise, but it’s conveyed amazingly well through the film itself, so your best bet is to just watch. Hit the jump to watch Skhizein and for some of my brief thoughts on it.
