Mankind is No Island

Mankind is No Island was the winner of the Tropfest New York Short Film Festival.  It was filmed using a mobile phone in Sydney and New York by Jason van Genderen.  Our Director of Studies was keen to show it to me.  “Brilliant” was the word he used to describe it.  In following on from Blog Action Day and the topic of poverty, I felt that I should share this movie.

Of course, I was impressed with the clever use of text and the perfect way in which the music was timed with each text image.  However, the message was conveyed in such a powerful way – I was very emotional!
