Saturday Short

Today's short is the sensitively made Last Letters (Contented Productions, 2016), directed by Nils Clauss. Made in South Korea, this moving documentary is about the April 16, 2014, Sewol ferry accident in which 304 of 476 persons, most of them teenagers, perished. Much of the film, which has English subtitles, comprises interviews with families of eight of the victims.
