Animator Mathieu Labaye created this short film in tribute to his late father, who had been in a wheelchair for the last 15 years of his life. The film starts out slow, but when it gets going, it’s simply beautiful. It’s reminiscent of Aeon Flux and Bill Plimpton’s work in many ways, but it has much more heart and a haunting atmosphere. This is definitely worth watching in full-screen mode.
