Is it real? Is it a dream? Is it a therapy session?

SPOILERS… Please go spend eight minutes and watch the film above before continuing on.

Risorgimento – a time of renewal or renaissance : revival.

Revival fits so well with this film. My theory is, Lance was trying to commit suicide and his psyche was trapped in this room watching past and present moments from his life.

This was a nice thought provoking short by Trace Walker! I don’t always enjoy having to think a ton when it comes to movies, but I did with Risorgimento. I mean, it’s probably because I have a pretty decent theory (if I do say so myself), but regardless, I’m tipping my hat to Trace. I look forward to seeing what he produces in the future.

P.S., I really loved the way the credits rolled on the old television set with pictures to go with the names. I know its a very subtle thing to pick out, but that was one of my favorite parts of the short.
