Sophie Lancaster

Thought I would share with you guys this short. I'm not sure if any of you read, but last year in Lancashire, England a 22-year-old woman was viciously beaten to death in a park essentially just for being goth. Her boyfriend was also beaten, but survived.
Yesterday would have been Sophie's 23rd birthday, and in her memory this animated short was created and was broadcasted on a 24-hour loop yesterday in Manchester's Cathedral Garden. It's really beautifully done.

I watched this in a setting that required the volumed muted, but the piece worked just fine to me; beautifully done.
