A Finger, Two Dots Then Me

I'm not usually the kind of person to listen to poetry, but this video is definitely an exception. The short film "A Finger, Two Dots Then Me" is an award winning film that first appeared in 2010 at the Miami International Film Festival. The short film is a spoken-word piece of the popular poem by Derrick Brown.

When I first came across this video I was very hesitant to watch it, and when I started I almost turned it off because I thought it was going to be cheesy and boring... I was very wrong. I'm not sure if it's the lyrics or the passion Brown expels through his voice, but the climax of the video is incredibly emotional and mind opening. It's difficult to explain, but Brown turned the simple idea of life, death and afterlife into a completely different level of consciousness.

I encourage everyone to watch the entire film. It's only about 8 minutes and completely worth it!
