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.


  1. We are creatures of HABIT plain and true! But I have hope that we can indeed learn and develop new habits. We just need some people to lead and show the way. I'm thankful I know some people who are doing this, and it has to be not just young people, but all of us from all age ranges, where we see a few people who will make the sacrifices and take on new habits.

  2. I think the problem is nobody really knows how to fix the issue. And until all die from pollution people don't think it is actually harming them.
