Short Films about Mindfulness and Letting Go
There are some truly amazing life changing films out there. But you don’t always want to sit down for two hours. Sometimes you just need a ten minute zap of inspiration, motivation or relaxation to give you a boost. What better way than by watching some of the best short films of all time? Let’s look at some great short films that inspire the viewer to relax and let go of stress and worry.
The Beaufort Diaries
A short but sweet film, The Beaufort Diaries is about a polar bear living in a lonely world. The Beaufort Diaries sums up how we are all but a lonely creature in a big world, but in its humorous take on failure and success it somehow reminds us not to take it all so seriously.
The Lost Thing
The Lost Thing teaches us all about mindfulness, open mindedness and compassion. It is only by being mindful that the protagonist was able to spot The Lost Thing in the first place where all others wandered past without seeing it. And where most would judge The lost Thing, the protagonist takes it home as a friend and compassionately aims to help it.
What is truly beautiful about this short (and what sets it apart even among its fellow shorts here on arolemodel.com) is the clarity of its message. With whispering sweetness it simple states: Open your eyes and you shall see the secret beauty of life (as the protagonist finds at the end of the film).
This is a great bit of therapy for any control freaks out there. The 4 minutes of this short film will inspire you to take a chance on life, let go and go with the flow.
A loop through the lives of three street urchins, barely into their teens, pickpockets inBarcelona. There’s a wonderful sense of escapism and of letting go and trusting in life to this short film.
