72kg Short Film Analysis

  1. 1. { Short Film Analysis 7- 72kg
  2. 2.  72kg is a 4 minute social realism short film set in Dubai. The entire film was filmed on the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 mobile phone and placed 2nd in a phone-based film competition created by Samsung. During the film we see a wealthy man help a homeless man to earn money by giving him a set of scales. So when people give the homeless money they are paying to get weighed. This film is based on the saying "Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime". The film can be seen as social realistic as it tackles the real world issue of homelessness. Intro
  3. 3.  The film starts with a shot with a homeless man sitting on the side of the road. We see a man walk past and put money in the tin the homeless man has in front of him. Next we see a wealthy man walk up to the homeless man but he keeps walking without giving him any money. We can tell that this man is wealthy as he is wearing a suit and therefore stands out as no one else on the street is wearing smart clothes. This therefore highlights the wealth of the man and makes the audience question why he didn't give the homeless man any money.
  4. 4.  Next we see the wealthy man enter his house and begin to search through his drawers and boxes on top of a cupboard. Eventually we see the man lift down a box and place it down. The film then cuts to a shot of the wealthy man carrying the box down the street the homeless man is sitting on.  We then see the wealthy man kneel down next to the homeless man with the box. The wealthy man then takes a set of scales out of the box and places it next to the homeless man.
  5. 5.  The wealthy man then stands on the scales and weighs himself. He then gives the homeless some money and then leaves. Next we see another man walk up to homeless man and he weighs himself on the scales and gives the man some money. This scene is very effective as it shows the message of the film that it is better to give someone a way to earn money instead of giving of them money. This is due to scales which allow the homeless man to provide a service to people who then pay the homeless man.
  6. 6.  Overall, I believe that this is a effective social realism short film that tackles the issue of homelessness well and shows that it is better to help someone achieve something instead of just giving them something. Furthermore the characters in this film don't say a single word and this further highlights the effectiveness of the film as it is still able to deliver a message without having the characters talk.
