Skhizein - short film by Jeremy Clapin Having been struck by a 150-ton meteorite, Henry has to adapt to living precisely ninety-one centimeters from himself. An animated short that runs for only 13 minutes, this tells the rather comical and yet sad story of a man affected by a meteorite in a most peculiar way. Once he has been struck he finds that his body is now constantly 91 centimetres from where it should be. To open a door, sit down, answer his telephone, etc, he has to perform all of the actions exactly 91 centimetres away from where he normally would, laws of physics having taken a long walk off a short pier. With a warm, wonderfully rendered style and a mixture of great detail and enjoyably abstract moments, this little piece of animation is, quite frankly, an absolute joy. The bizarre central concept is brilliantly realised and handled so well that you never laugh AT the ridiculousness of the whole thing although you do get a chance to laugh ALONG with a number of great moments.
