    The time??? 90 seconds = 100 seconds ??
    The films shortlisted for this year’s ompetition stood out for their originality, imagination and ability to engage, and are now in the running for the main DepicT, BUT RULES COMPETION… IS NOT RESPECTED: The time??? 90 seconds = 100 seconds ??

    5 seconds both heads and tails of DepicT ad. 100% rules followed with the film being a perfect 90seconds of joy.

    The lack of spoken words only added to the intrigue this film presents, instead provoking viewer interpretation. Captivating!

  • Sally says:

    I can’t get this off my mind! It’s 90 seconds of genius! Seems to me to be a succinct illustration of the raging competition between our deepest instinct to reach out with compassion in our shared humanity, alongside the growth in societal constraints which increasingly feed our fear of involvement, and result in worsening isolation from each other.

    Really like it – this is how the world should be (though he was listening to his music a bit loudly!!) Guess that was half the point though – juxtaposition of our increasingly self centred world with the tender human interaction they exchanged. Full of hope. Thanks.
