Before we begin I just want to say that Alma is the 52nd short film on Short Film Saturday. Having never skipped a week that means that I’ve been presenting Short Film Saturday for one full year. Is everyone up for another year?
Alma, a little girl, skips through the snow covered streets of a small town. Her attention is caught by a strange doll in an antique toy shop window. Fascinated, Alma decides to enter.
Written and directed by Rodrigo Blaas.
From the United States and Spain.
5 minutes and 29 seconds.
No words are spoken in this short film; nor do they need to be. The perfect blend of story, animation and music come together for 5 plus minutes of enchantment…and horror. Enjoy.
