Hey WOD’ers, bust out your nerdy glasses and bad fashion sense because we’re back in high school! Why you ask? In true World of Death fashion these two short films may actually teach you a thing or two. I wish I’d had a class in the occult arts in my high school!
First up in Norman Jangot and Victor Druillet’s MOCKING DEATH: THE TUTORIAL, we get a crash course on the ins and outs of trying to persuade Death to let you live. Many techniques are shown in this instructional video, and it’s wit and subject matter would be well suited to a variety of classroom settings… Of students over the age of 18.
Next in Daniel Johnson’s TROUT, we take an unconventional approach to learning one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies. When a sentient novelty singing fish reveals a possible affair between his girlfriend and roommate, a man wonders if he should take matters into his own hands to end the supposed relationship. Surely, this would make a great addition to any other Shakespeare adaptations shown to the lazy readers of an English classroom.
School is in session, children.
