Watch The Incident At Tower 37 Online

Posted by Grey Wednesday, March 23, 2011

For yesterday (March 22nd) was World Water Day, and this is one poignant short with a thought-provoking message.

Having touring across the globe for two years to raise awareness for World Water Day, The Incident at Tower 37 is now finally released online in a continuing effort to raise further attention to Earth's imperious water issues.

Directed by filmmaker Chris Perry in collaboration with animators from Hampshire College, the ten-minute animated short film pits a race of amphibious creatures against an unlucky steward of a water plant.

Here's the official description to the film via Perry's Bit Films blog:

Tower 37 is a ten-minute animated short film that was produced collaboratively at Hampshire College and has spent the past two years in film festivals worldwide.

We are releasing it online today, World Water Day, to bring even greater attention to humanity's role in creating and perpetuating this planet's critical water issues. Our film is allegorical, but the challenges we face are real.

Please enjoy, and share!

Hit the jump to check out the awesome short film.

In an interview with Take Part, Perry, who worked on Pixar productions such as Toy Story 2 and A Bug's Life, highlights the theme of the short film:

The film tells the story of one person's transition from ignorance to awareness. Tragically, it happens too late to save them. But it shows we have the capacity to understand our broader impact on the world and, ultimately, do something about it. My personal hope is that we all recognize the ticking clock and act responsibly sooner rather than later.
