14. The Gruffalo (2009)
So the classic children’s story from writer Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler has come to life in this adaptation. The story is of a witty mouse who relies on its imagination to intimidate predators such as an owl, a fox, and a snake. He tells them the presence of an imaginary monster named Gruffalo to scare them away. The kick here? Gruffalo actually exists. The only word to describe this short is delightful. Go watch it if you haven’t already.

13. The Trader (2018)
What if you stumble upon a region where potatoes are the only currency? What if money isn’t as valuable as potatoes? This may sound funny but this Sundance jury award for nonfiction winner is anything but funny. It tells the struggle of Georgia, a Republic strangled in poverty and hopelessness. The people are suffering from hunger, lack of job and enough currency to sustain their lives and they seem to have no solution ahead of the tunnel. This gut-wrenching story is both long and short enough to live you in a deep abyss of hollowness for some time.

12. Kung Fury (2015)
Let’s add some sci-fi flavor, shall we? The premise is absurd and interesting at the same time. We have a police officer in 1980s Miami who gets heightened Kung-fu powers from a weird supernatural incident and in 1985 when he quits police force for reasons deemed as spoilers, he has a new foe to fight- the supreme leader Hitler himself who is named in it, and we kid you not, Kung Führer. The end result is full of adrenaline rush and dopamine overdose which will satisfy the Ninja in you.
