The Smiling Film That Made Me Cry

Barry was introduced to this beautiful short film, and I cried when I saw it. It’s beautifully written, and has a powerful, heart-warming message.

We also posted it on the LWL Worldwide blog, but I needed to include it here too because it’s a great way to end 2008:

I’ve seen my share of short films, having covered many film festivals in my reporter days.  I interviewed tons (like, hundreds) of short film actors, directors, producers, writers, and fans.  And none of their films held a candle to this one!

It won Best Short Film in the Sedona International Film Festival, but I’ll bet it could win more than that… if the film festival judges would allow some feel-good positive messaging rather than the doom-and-gloom artsiness that usually dominates the festivals.

Funny thing, on Canadian passport photos you’re not allowed to smile, so my picture is serious… but if this makes a few people lighten up, have some fun, get inspired, and validate another person’s existence, then it’s done its job!

Keep Unwrapping The Mysteries of Life!

  1. Heather,

    Thanks for bring this video to my attention, it is certainly very different and heart warming.

    It reminds me of a project I once did for an Emotional Intelligence course – I couple of people at work who even after working with them for years were very distant. I tried going out of my way to be more friendly – hold the door, say good morning, dropping observant comments etc. In both cases the relationship really changed, today I get on really well with them.

    Have a great 2009, John

  2. Heather,

    Thanks for sharing another inspiring and powerful message with us. I have to admit that I teared up also. Have a great 2009.
