Nominated for the 2017 Academy Award® for Best Animated Short Film!

This short film tells the story of Vaysha, a young girl born with one green eye and one brown eye. But colour isn’t the only thing that’s different about Vaysha’s gaze. While her left eye sees only the past; her right sees only the future. Like a terrible curse, Vaysha’s split vision prevents her from inhabiting the present. Blinded by what was and tormented by what will be, she remains trapped between two irreconcilable temporalities. “Blind Vaysha,” they called her.

In this metaphoric tale of timeless wisdom and beauty based on the eponymous short story by Georgi Gospodinov, filmmaker Theodore Ushev reminds us of the importance of keeping our sights on the present moment.

    A perfect film to understand the power of now it's a very well made very good movie it shows how people keep on either living in their past or worried for future and the never live in present Very meaningful very well presented beautiful movie As a hypnotherapist I looked at it in so many different ways

    Beautiful, thoughtful film, and a story I'm just now discovering. The tyranny of regret, of past trauma and nostalgic longing. The maze of anxiety about the future. Sadly, no easy prescription for finding the way to being here, now.

    A truly tour de force of a short film.
