The Butterfly Circus
I was watching some of the videos on the blog and the video that I chose was the Butterfly Circus because it’s a really beautiful story, it is a short film that teaches you that it does not matter who you are or how you look you can do and be whatever you want to you just have to try.
This short film is about Will a person without limbs who was part of a circus exhibition where people were able to laugh in his face just because he was different from all. It shows you how discriminate and racist were people in the past.
Mendez the owner of the Butterfly Circus teach Will how little things can turn into big ones, that you have to trust in yourself first and stop listening what other people say about you.
There is a scene where everybody is playing and swimming in a lake and Will couldn’t cross to the other side to go with them, then he asks Mendez to help him, but Mendez didn’t do it because he wanted Will to do it by himself and he was about to give up, but he tried and he did it, suddenly he fell off the trunk to the water and nobody could find him until he goes to the surface laughing happily because he’s swimming, what I think that Mendez tried to say to Will was that if you never try you will never know.
My opinion of the short film is that it is an amazing beautiful story that makes you think about all the times that you’ve given up just because there is a little tiny obstacle and how someone without all our opportunities can do things that we didn’t even try, how someone can turn into a magnificent person and there is no excuse of anything, you can’t blame anyone if you can’t do things because the only person standing in your way, is you.
