Today I have two great shorts for you.
The first is by a Japanese filmmaker, Naotomo Umewaka, we met in Hannover. He sent me some of his films and this one, called Nothing Else Matters, is a haunting documentary short about lost dreams and the hardships of everyday life.
The second is a film called Say, Marimo and it’s from a Japanese short film collection called Inu no Eiga, where a group of Japanese filmmakers explores the relationship between human beings and their dogs. This one might be a bit over the top for some, but if you’ve ever had a dog you might be able to relate to it. So touching.
