A Short Film: Volition

volitionbts1

I just finishing watching “Volition”.  It is a fifteen minute film focusing on three of the worst atrocities of human rights this world has faced.  I’ll let you decide if you agree with me.  Coupled with amazing cinematography and music this short film does a brilliant and powerful job relaying it’s intended message.  I also love the film because it is not overly sentimental, which some films can be ruining its impact on the audience.  I would recommend watching this with your spouse and/or children.  It will definitely be worth your 15 minutes.  My favorite line in the whole movie is: “I just hope the day comes when we can see this for what it really is.”

Films Synopsis:

“Volition (n)- The act of making a choice. Sometimes the choice of inaction has consequences stronger than we could ever imagine. Throughout history, men have been faced with difficult choices in a world that makes it easy for them to conform. This film explores the hope that lies behind every decision made in the face of adversity; the hope that is buried in the heart of those that look beyond themselves and see something bigger worth fighting for.”
