Balk finds "Between Bears":

I know almost nothing about this short film by Eran Hilleli, and presumably it was passed my way due to my fascination with bears and constant posting of bear videos. Having watched it twice it is still something of a mystery to mewhat does it all mean? etc.but for a five-minute animated movie for what the Internet tells me is a graduation project for an Israeli art school, it is pretty transfixing. But then again, it has bears in it, so I'm an easy sell.

I confess to being just as befuddled - and entranced. More scenes of dramatic shaving here.
