A Series of Kinetic Sets Tell a Story: Beautifully rendered cardboard sets and characters and a seemingly weightless camera capture an astonishing voyage of immigration, love, and World War II in a single take.

Through the painstaking transformation of a series of cardboard boxes, Shannon Kohlitz brings a box of cherished keepsakes to life, recalling a tale of love and heartbreak that spans decades and continents. Before you toss out a seemingly useless heirloom, ask yourself, “If inanimate objects could speak, what stories would they tell?”

Directed by Shannon Kohlitz. Made at University of Michigan.
