Monument: An Urban Tale of Courage

Monument: An Urban Tale of Courage

Monument is a three-minute short film created by the English filmmaker, Robin Schmidt.  The film was made as part of the competition in support of the Fireflies Charity, which recognizes relatives and friends’ battles with cancer.  This year they asked for entries for a film challenge to create a three minute film about courage.  Monument is  kind of an urban fairytale about an aged Rastafarian in a wheelchair, who relives a knife attack and decides to rid the community of its knife problem once and for all by magnetizing his body.

The film was a finalist in the Fireflies competition earlier this year, and won the Bahamas 14 Islands Film Challenge.
