Short Film: In One Drag (Germany, 2016)

Here's a quick little film that puts a new spin on "the horrors of smoking". The three-minute stop-motion film is by Alireza Hashempour, made while the Tehran-born, freelance 2-D and stop-motion filmmaker was still a student at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in Ludwigsburg. One might read the short as a wish-fulfillment film: who hasn't wished, at some point in their life, that the jackasses that see fit to throw their non-biodegradable cigarette stubs everywhere wouldn't get their due? (And we say that as an occasional smoker.)
In any event, In One Drag is well-made and stylistically assured, funny and horrific, and definitely doesn't overstay its welcome. Enjoy.
