Can you spare a moment?

From Mexican director Alonso Alvarez Barreda, a beautiful, moving short film about the power of the written word. Hit the link below to see it for yourself ---

"The Story of a Sign" won the fourth annual 2008 NFB Cannes Short Film online competition, and was voted the best short film in the Festival Internacional de Cine en Corto. It was an official selection at the San Diego Latino Film Festival, along with many other festivals, and is now regularly programmed on television in Mexico.
Commenting on this poignant work of art, Barreda said, "I always wanted to make this film because I believe in the power of the story."
The music, which is the theme from the film Il Postino, was composed by Luis Enriquez Bacalov.
