Brilliant Short film L'ALTRA PAR by Steve Cutts

I used to think we can’t have too much communication, but I have to admit that’s no longer the case. Between the cell phone we carry like physical appendages, and the televisions that hover in the background of our lives spouting the most dramatic bad news that comes across the net, we are drowning in communication. How does a writer find a way to communicate the unique thoughts, feeling, and vision that may be inside? How do we writers maintain the motivating belief that what’s inside us individually is important or even relevant? That is the most important challenge we writers face. And now that AI has asserted its ever-presence, how we face that challenge has never been more crucial to how we as humans continue to evolve. I’d love to hear your thoughts about this. Hurrah to the filmmakers!


The Egyptian film "L'ALTRA PAR", which lasted only 2 minutes, won the award for best short film at the Venice Film Festival. The director is 20 years old. The film describes how people get caught up in technology and forget about the best things in life, human coexistence with love and brotherhood. @steve_cutts
