Video of the Day: A Powerful Montage of All The Different Breaths We Take in Life

Daniel-Mercadante-01 Daniel-Mercadante-02 Daniel-Mercadante-03 Daniel-Mercadante-04

One of my favourite directors, Daniel Mercadante, returns with a powerful short film called “Breath”. He spent more than a year assembling this poetic montage of all the different kinds of breaths we take during life. I have been a fan of Daniel for years now, and he just might be the person whose work I’ve featured the most since I started Booooooom (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here).

Watch “Breath” below and you’ll understand why I’ve posted his work so much.
