A short film on the “circle game” will bring back memories of punches in the schoolyard
Kids play some of the silliest games, but there really is no game as dumb as the “circle game. ”
You probably remember how all of the costs elementary and secondary school children would make their friends look in their direction, but a circle formed with their thumb and forefinger below their waistline. The person who managed to get his friend to observe the circle of his fingers was then allowed to give him a good old sock over his shoulder. But if the prey was able to put its finger in the hole without looking, then it would have to hit the hobbies.
Yeah, pretty silly. Modern science still has not understood why schoolyard children want to beat themselves according to the rules of this ritual. But director and filmmaker Jesse vogelaar will make you nostalgic for the game with its short “You Lose”.
In the film, Vogelaar shows that anyone, regardless of age, gender, skin color, religion, etc. can participate in the circle game. And it’s damn beautiful. Hell, even a guy in a coffin might be trying to cheat on you.
Stay alert kids you never know when someone will be playing the circle game now.
