Claire Obscur is a lovely short about a young girl fighting the monster that haunts her nights, a heroic adventure that just so happens to deal directly with grief.
Grief is a difficult subject to talk about, but it’s also something that most of us will experience at least a few times in our lives. There may not be a lighthearted way to start a conversation about grief and loss, but this short produced by students from ESMI Bordeaux makes it a little less intimidating, and that’s a great start.
And if the subject’s still a bit heavy for you, you can always watch for the video game references.
