Short Film Response
I think that the personification used by giving the flower the function of breathing really sets up the whole film. It makes people think of pollution in a new light. Like, we're putting all these hazardous things like factory smoke and CO2 emissions from cars into the environment and the plants are just breathing it in. When Lucas talked afterwards about the film, it also made me realize that we're doing this by choice. Us continuing to pollute the air is only shaving years off of a healthy environment. There are plenty of ways that we can cut back on pollution but we as a people are just a bit too naive to do anything about it.
