“Are you sure about this? What about that? Do you remember that? Do you know where we’re going at least? We’re not lost, are we?”
‘Old Fangs’ is a short film directed by Adrien Merigeau and Alan Holly that was produced at Cartoon Saloon in Kilkenny, Ireland. It has won a slew of awards and, after watching it, you’ll understand why. Lots of heavy themes here – kind of reminds me of Gauguin’s Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?.
“People say, ‘I’ve never been in a fight’ and what that really means is that they’ve never really risked themselves beyond a comfortable existence physically…[Being] somewhere where you [can] have an ultimate loss [or] where you can be killed or maimed is [to have] an experience that builds courage.”
From the documentary series ‘California is a place.’ by Drea Cooper and Zackary Canepari.
