In 2015, the Dutch animation studio Job, Joris & Marieke, got an Oscar nomination for this delightful animated short, “A Single Life.” It’s a two minute tale about how music–particularly vinyl records–can transport us to magical places. And we mean really magical places.
Seeing that we don’t believe in spoilers, we’re not going to say anything more–other than “A Single Life” has been screened at more than 200 festivals and received more than 40 awards. And, what’s more, it will be added to our collection of Animated Films, a subset of our collection 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns, Documentaries & More.
