short film

'World of Tomorrow' is a fantastic commentary on past, present, and future consciousness

Stumble upon this 16-minute Oscar-nominated short film by Don Hertzfeld entitled World of Tomorrow, which is now streaming on Netflix, and you won't be sorry you did. It's an enchanting sci-fi horror-meets-bedtime story, in fully animated stick-figure glory. A theme that continues to ring in the ears, long after the movie ends:

We don’t ever fully appreciate the present until it becomes our past
