A film showing depression, hope and happiness through the eyes of a small boy. Music by The Mars Volta. The lyrics are not directly related to the story.

Please leave your thoughts, I enjoy reading them :)

Update: Thank you so much for front page, NG!

This flash changed my life.

This was my introduction to The Mars Volta. I saw it almost 2 years ago and have been obsessed with TMV ever since. I have every album and have been to 4 concerts. You did an exceptional job of portraying the de-loused theme and I want to thank you personally. You very well may have saved my life. Thank you.

Touched me deeply. One of the most alive movies I've seen here. Definitely a favorite.

oh my gosh! *bursts into tears*

that's so overly depressing about the poor kid! ...why? that's so sad when he'd rather be in his mind's world than real life. i'm guess he felt more freedom & love there than in his home. his parents didn't even notice!!! SOOOOOOO SAD!!! *sobbing* i guess that was pretty good stuff. i feel SO bad for him. like he's barely loved. i think you portrayed his totally alone feeling rather well & he seemed, to me, to feel more belonging in that strange world of his. well done.
