thursday matinee: The Last Bookshop

Surreal Sharx

In a future not too far off from our own, books are a distant memory and even e-readers have fallen out of vogue. But when a young boy’s bright and noisy entertainment system fails in the short film The Last Bookshop, he discovers a quiet haven for stories and the man who loves them.

As a work of science fiction, The Last Bookshop has some problems; notably, commerce still seems to exist, but in a way that somehow makes currency difficult to comprehend. But it is still lovely as a fable and as an exploration of mortality from the perspective of a man who views his life—and legacy—in terms of his love for books.

Richard Dadd and Dan Fryer directed this film for The Bakery, and it was filmed in various bookstores in Kent and London.
