One day you will wake up. And you won’t recognize where you are. You will have to find your way back. But can you? This captivating short film is called To wake up and it follows a man’s experience of the consequences of losing his wife and future daughter. This touching short is directed by filmmaker Martin Klapperbein and writer/cinematographer Liam Higgins. It’s beautifully shot and heartfelt and moving. Featuring Michael Wamara like the man who wakes up. Sometimes it’s better not to explain and over-analyze shorts, and just let them overwhelm you, and let them affect you however they might. This is one of those shorts that I want to recommend, but I don’t want to say anything else about it before. It is better to dive in and spend 7 fascinating minutes with this artistic creation. Read more about the short below and enjoy the journey.
