visceral, tightly directed and thought-provoking
31 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I came across this short upon a recommendation of friends. It shook me to the core and I cannot stop thinking about it.

The filmmaking is superb, on par with David Fincher, Jonathan Glazer or Chris Cunningham. Rarely do we see a short film devoid of superfluous CG effects and typical "Hollywood" endings. This has neither. For all intents and purposes this feels real and it scared the life out of me and my wife.

I'd heard of the atrocities in the Congo and have seen features based on such (Blood Diamond, Machine Gun Preacher) but this cut to the core and truly faced me dead-on with the connection between the mining of "blood minerals" and our ubiquitous and omnipresent and anonymous smart phones.

Thusly I signed the petition.

Finally something of recent memory that actually means something for a relevant, engaging cause and executed in a searing, unflinching effort in doing so.

A+
