Film School Friday | Beijing Silvermine

In Beijing’s city dumps, Thomas Sauvin salvages photo negatives from the trash. This simple act has resulted in Sauvin accumulating over 500,000 images f strangers from all over the country, and now, after a Chinese artist named Lei Lei discovered Sauvin’s strange project, an animation and short film.

This is really beautiful, and sort of a testament to the oneness of humanity in a completely unexpected way. Please watch, you can thank me later.
