In the Head: It’s the Day I Die!

In the Head: It’s the Day I Die!

In the Head (Dans la Tête) is a wickedly funny animated short film by four students from ESMA, the French animation school.  Poor Antoine has volunteered to join the French army, but his short patriotic war experience is, to say the very least, a complete disaster.  The film mixes a tearjerker of a war movie with bureaucratic supernatural slapstick comedy.  Young Antoine’s life flashes before his eyes just prior to dying on the battlefront, and then he’s forced to die all over again, and again and again.  The poor young soldier keeps waiting and waiting for the day to come when he actually does finally die!

The Dancer: The Resilience of a Young Orphan in India

The Dancer: The Resilience of a Young Orphan in India

What good is dancing,
If you have no music,
Or if you have no one to dance with?

The Dancer is a very touching narrative documentary short film directed by Seth Stark, which explores the life of a young orphan in India.  The film is a moving testimony to the resilience of children who are forced to cope with extremely difficult living situations, as well as to the potential contributions of benign, compassionate forms of group care for children.
