Work has been heavy lately, and while I’m reading a lot I haven’t had so much time to write. Which is another reason I appreciate these little videos, aside from their inherent artistic and entertainment value.
This one, called “Nano,” is a fun thing with a neat twist at the end. While still not being a true story, per se, it nonetheless has more actual meaning than some of the other Gobelins short films I have posted. It made me smile and laugh. Also, it fulfills C.S. Lewis’ requirement for stories that they add to reality rather than merely describe it. In this case, the addition is both fantastical and charming!
Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become.
