Sandstorm (2004)

3 mins

Watch it for free at IMDB.

Synopsis: In a barren and surreal world, two skeletons find a very special pair of eye balls buried in the sand. As a result, conflict ensures.

Director: Yeon Choi

Writer: Yeon Choi (story)

Serious Jest:  (Free View)  It took me until about 30 seconds after this quick short was over to realize how direct and effective an illustration of various human emotions this film is.  In under 3 minutes, it took me through surprise, curiosity, amazement, joy, trust, altruism, selfishness, paranoia, envy, indignation, anger/rage, confusion, fear, sadness, guilt, regret, and loneliness (did I forget anything?)…and it packaged them all up in a quirky, macabre animation of two skeletons walking through a sandstorm.  Well done.
