Lest We Forget: Standing Fast Against the Yokes of Bondage

Lest We Forget: Standing Fast Against the Yokes of Bondage

Don’t blame the devil
for the evils of man.

Lest We Forget is an award-winning 5-min. live-action short film directed by Brandon McCormick and produced by Whitestone Motion Pictures. Rich in cinematographic beauty, the film is set in a time of mortal combat during the Civil War and follows a lone soldier running away from or towards something; the only clue is a single key in his possession.

Lest We Forget serves as a poignant reminder that nobody lives in vain, and that sometimes someone even manages not to die in vain, even though every victim of every war is an unforgivable sin. Stand fast, therefore, in the liberty that has made us free, and let us not be entangled again with the yokes of bondage.

Zero: A Courageous Yarn of Forbidden Love

Zero: A Courageous Yarn of Forbidden Love

Zero is a highly acclaimed Australian stop-motion animated short film, written and directed by Christopher Kezelos. Zero has screened at over 50 film festivals and won 11 awards, including Best Animation from LA Shorts Fest and the Rhode Island International Film Festival and has been nominated for an AFI Award.

The film follows life in a world of yarn puppets, where the main character is a zero. This is a world in which from birth your destiny is determined by a number boldly displayed on your chest, representing all that you are or can be. 9′s are the elites of this world, and the very lowest you can sink, the untouchables, are cursed as Zero.

The dark fairytale takes place in a world built upon a rigid foundation of social intolerance. In this land of numbered characters, the zeroes endure lives of constant heart-ache, never allowed to have romantic relationships, marry, have children or be parents. Faced with constant prejudice and persecution, one oppressed zero walks a lonely path of disappointment and abuse until a chance encounter changes his life forever: he meets a female zero. Together they prove that through determination, courage and love, nothing can become truly something.
