This short film directed by Nicolas Galoux for TBWA/Paris (and produced by TBWA\ELSE) introduces us to a burn victim who enjoys going to the movies. But he is in the theater only when the lights are off, meaning he arrives late and leaves early. Thus he never sees how the movie ends. For him the silver lining is that he’s never disappointed by the ending of a movie because he simply imagines the ending the way he would like things to turn out.

Most importantly, at least for the time he’s in a darkened theater, he can laugh with other people and feel part of a community--never having to fear being seen and judged by the scars on his face.

This profile of a burn victim is brought to us by The Burns and Smiles Association, founded by Laurent Gaudens, himself severely burnt at the age of 4. Burns and Smiles aims to help burn victims recreate social connections.

This short is designed to raise public awareness of burn victims, and support for The Burns and Smiles Association.
