Why Watch? “History” might be a stretch here (especially since pretty much everything in this fake doc is, well, fake, but it’s a fantastic premise given the perfect, tongue-in-cheek execution. Switching between sweeping location shots and antique newspaper clippings, this fun short from the Justin and Jared Varava channels Ken Burns by way of  Monty Python to take a slightly existential, slightly silly look at a tumbleweed that won’t tumble. It’s innovative while sticking to the usual rules of the genre, and it proves once again that the desert west is perfect for dry humor. What will it cost you? Only 6 minutes. Skip work. Watch more short films.   »
