In the Shadow: a Surreal Fantasy Film Noir

In the history of cinema, a vast but untold number of shadows have been used to set a mood, frighten the viewer, or imply action without showing the actors. Fabrice Mathieu (previously at Neatorama) wrote a story around such shadowy film clips from more than 60 movies. The narration is told from the perspective of a shadow. The "wearer" is the person throwing the shadow. A shadow is doomed to follow the actions of the wearer, and this shadow does not approve of those deeds at all. He eventually become determined to rebel against the wearer. What happens when a shadow decides to take matters into his own hands? This experimental short is in French with English subtitles, which means you'll want to see it twice to catch all the glorious shadows. While In the Shadow has only become freely available today, it has deservedly won all kinds of film awards. -Thanks, Fabrice!
