    This came to me on FB. After watching it a couple of times, I wished I was teaching honors English classes, creative writing, digital technology and production, film interpretation, and the list goes on. Even as a science teacher, this has deep meaning and much to contemplate, but I can imagine some of the things I would use it for if I was teaching any of the other contents I listed. I would be interested in knowing how others might use this gem of a film in their teaching.

    But would the kiddos be into it? It looks a bit strange.

    And challenging, forcing them to find the meaning and then analyze how they feel about the message. Would you have considered death to be a friend? Or thought about death wanting to live? There is, of course, the final reality that death finds us all at some point.

    I admit that I would love to be able to use digital technology to create something as beautiful and thought provoking. Could be a great experience for the student who is a more visual learner or had talent in that direction.

    Kind of late to the party on this one, but wow. Now that I've wiped the tears and snot off of my face, I'll say that it would work well with The Book Thief.

    Thanks for sharing that. Beautiful.

    I agree with GPC, it seems like it would be great to show if teaching The Book Thief. Thank you for sharing!

    Thanks to those of you who chimed in. My hat's off to Marsha Onderstijn for producing something that more than a cursory glance would first imagine.
