The Wonderfully Bizarre Tale of a Dying Man Who Had Only 1500 Words Left to Live

1500 Words by writer Jim Memzies and directed by filmmaker Andrew Chaplin is a wonderfully bizarre short film that tells the story of Stanley Franks, who is told by his dispassionate doctor that he only has a terminal illness that allows him only 1500 words to live.

After using over a thousand to express his anguish within the doctor’s office, Stanley goes home and does his best to choose his words very carefully.
