El Héroe

This award-winning animated short film (in Cannes, no less) presents to us a man who tries to stop a woman from jumping off the subway tracks.

Played out in a sea of grimy scenes and people-crushing waves, El Héroe shows us that life isn’t always beautiful, and our good intentions aren’t always what’s needed.
