Watch Online Wednesdays brings you The Lost Thing, directed by Andrew Ruhemann and Shaun Tan. Based on a picture book by multi-award-winning author and illustrator Shaun Tan, this animated short (15 min.) tells the story of a boy who discovers a bizarre-looking creature while out collecting bottle tops at the beach. Realizing it is lost, he tries to find out where it belongs, but is met with indifference by everyone he encounters. Empathizing with the creature, the boy sets out to find a “place” for it.
