The Windshield Wiper Short Film

"What color do you see when you think about yourself?" This entrancing animated short film is worth 15 minutes of your time to watch. It will make you question your own thoughts about love and romance… The Windshield Wiper is the latest animated short made by Spanish animator / filmmaker Alberto Mielgo - best known for directing the short The Witness for Netflix's "Love, Death & Robots" series (which has the same style as this). The Windshield Wiper is a very personal and particular vision on Love and relationships. Presented by Pastel. Written, directed, designed by Mielgo. "Inside a cafĂ©, after lunch and while smoking a whole pack of cigarettes, a middle-aged man asks himself and the audience an ambitious question: What is Love? A collection of vignettes and situations will lead the man to the desired conclusion." I like seeing all the different visualizations of "love" in here. But watch out - there's some sex & nudity so it's NSFW. Enjoy.
