A short film by Dean Saffron

I simply had to make this video after meeting James, a very enigmatic man who has taken it upon himself to collect one bicycle from each developmental epoch for future generations to enjoy. A kind of time capsule if you will!

Directed by Cate Shortland.

When her SS officer father and mother, a staunch Nazi believer, are captured by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, the 14-year-old German girl Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl) must lead her four siblings on a harrowing journey across a devastated country. When she meets the charismatic and mysterious young refugee Thomas (Kai Malina, The White Ribbon), Lore soon finds her world shattered by feelings of hatred and desire as she must put her trust in the very person she was always taught to hate in order to survive.

Time-lapse Map of Europe

A pretty amazing time-lapse map of european political boundaries from about 1000-2005.

A live year counter would be killer, but you can sort of get hold of the major events by watching the relevant territories bloom across the map. The Mongol Invasion (0:20), for example is pretty dramatic. Or WWII (3:02).
