Die Rote Jacke or, “The Red Jacket” (2002)

The youth who would inhert THE red jacket

Here is a short that is simply a beautiful slice of the happenstance that occurs in life. Whats particularly remarkable about this short is that it is the 2003 recipient of the international student academy award. This short is essentially shot from the perspective of where the red jacket is, showing how it can bring two people that are desperately in need of someone else together through a series of random events. The short is heartwarming, beyond everything else this short will make you feel for the characters and hope for the best to come to the young boy. This short stands to tell us all of one of the most innate human needs, connection. In this case a personal tragedy coincides with the tragedy of war, and in those most terrible moments these two lost individuals find one another, with a little help from the red jacket.
