"Poem" by Matthias Zentner
Although this has been used as a commercial for Showtime in Ukrain, it's still a beautiful piece of art worthy of the title "short film." In all likelihood, without the money behind the advertiser, it would never have been produced, which would have been a terrible loss.
In this piece, the reading experience is represented as a visual metaphor as a woman passes through four stages of her life. I particularly like the part where the books escape from the bird cage, but everything about this is quite beautiful.
