Film as palindrome - thank goodness

Jonathan Reed won second place in AARP's U@50 video contest launched in 2007. Contestants were asked to create 2-minute video describing their vision of the future; what life would be like by the time they turned 50. Twenty-year-old Reed was inspired by the Argentinian political adverstisement "The Truth". It makes your hair stand on end. Thanks to Bookman Beattie for passing it on.

Wow. I love the way this works as fusion of words and motion. I wonder how I could incorporate something like this in my own teaching. Thanks, Mary.
