My Heart Attack

                                My Heart Attack
| 13 min

This animated short from Sheldon Cohen (The Sweater) tells the true story of a "nice Jewish boy with Buddhist inclinations" who suffers a heart attack. At the crossroads of documentary and animation, the film combines wry humour and philosophical musings to show that, sometimes, what feels like the end is really only just the beginning.

    Thanks for sharing your story, Sheldon. I love the light-hearted (no pun) approach you took. Sorry your neighbours lost Bailey. Glad to see you're still making films.
