Animated Shorts have become a sort of gold standard in innovative storytelling in the past few years with short films like “Hair Love” and “In a Heartbeat” dominating our screens. This week’s short film showcases a simple concept executed flawlessly proving that sometimes less really is more. With a Lion King-esque landscape, Borrowed Time covers loss, love and family perfectly. The breathtaking score was crafted by Gustavo Santaolalla, who won Best Score for Brokeback Mountain. The film is a beautiful piece that truly demands your full attention and pulls you into the story.
