  2. Love’s River of Errors

    David Richardson / Short, Animation / USA / 2016 / Experimental / 2:52 mins
    "Love's River of Errors" was written, designed and collaged after my brother's death from addiction, which he hid so well from our family for many years. In writing the poem, I changed my brother to "my sister" to get some distance in the creation of this video; just that much separation made it possible. Addiction touches almost every family, it seems. Creating this piece was how I came to some small sense of peace.

    Christopher Dobbs Jr. / Short, Animation / USA / 2017 / Comedy, Mystery / 10:55 mins
