Recommendation: Zero

One of the great things about the internet is that it makes it possible for people to share short films with a much wider audience than they would otherwise. Zero is one example of this.

Zero is a beautiful short film about discrimination (particularly race-based discrimination, although I also read ableism), in which the characters are adorable yarn dolls. Has a yarn doll ever made you cry? No?

Well, here’s your opportunity.

The animation is really lovely, and the message, while not subtle, is meaningful. And, while very sad, it ends hopefully. It’s 12 minutes of your time, and it’s definitely worth it.
