Scars. They really are something,are they not? They can be as simple as as cut left on a hand or foot,from a surgery to help heal you from a medical condition. Some run much deeper,scars from being in fire and or even a war.
But the deepest ones,well no one but you can really understand the scope of how deep some scars run. People can catch glimpses but often don’t really understand what they are seeing in relation to themselves.
German film maker Markus Kempken tells us in four very long minutes about his scars and how they were inflicted on him. He uses animated film as the medium in which he tells his story and its both beautiful and haunting. The animation is light and clean in stark contrast to the story being shared. This is one that will with you for a long time.

“Spoon” is only four minutes long so and Kempken both wrote and did the animation for his film.

What scars do you carry with you and how do you cope with them? Commenting is optional on this question.

  1. Holy crap! That was strangely terrifying. The sound of the spoon hitting: whack, whack, whack…*shudder*. Almost the exact same thing happened to a friend of mine who, these many years later, still relates how his mother was constantly hitting, slapping, beating him. Even during his birthday party when he scooped a little frosting off on his finger to eat it–she slapped him! In front of the guests! He reached 12 or 13, too, and one day did the exact same thing: grabbed her arms to stop her. And the exact same thing happened: she never beat him again. Because bullies lose their power when they’re confronted.
