A Finger, Two Dots Then Me

The video below is Trailer of 'A Finger, Two Dots Then Me', which was a simply beautiful spoken-word piece based on a popular poem by renowned modern poet Derrick Brown. The film takes a dramatic look at death, life and love through the eyes of Brown, a beat poet who has performed around the world for the last decade both as a headliner and with bands such as the Flaming Lips and the Cold War Kids. The short film won Best of the Fest at the San Jose Short Film Festival last weekend. Check it out:

The adorable British girls join the ranks of Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift who've covered the song, but Sophia Grace knocked both of them out the park with her rendition. Check it out:
