Based on a short piece of writing by Alain De Botton, Hannah Jacobs and Lara Lee‘s excellent little short examines our existence, alone and in love. Backed by an excellent Tom Rosenthal score, The Darkest Truth About Love tells some uncomfortable truths about falling for your love, whether you believe them, however, or instead let your romantic side take over, is up to you. The short is beautifully hand-illustrated and animated frame-by-frame.
