This beautiful film has moved millions in wake of Orlando shooting (VIDEO)

Joe Williams June 20, 2016

The short shows what it is like to grow up differently to those around you.

A German filmmaker has posted a touching video about the challenges of growing up gay.

Kai Stänicke said the only reason he shared the film was because a friend asked him to in the wake of last week’s homophobic attack in Orlando.

The filmmaker’s friend suggested it would a great way to support the victims of the atrocity.

“In the wake of the tragedy in Orlando a friend asked me to put my short film Golden online so she can share it with some friends,” he explained.

“If it can spread just a tiny bit of love in these devastating times, the film fulfilled its purpose.

“Wherever you are and not matter how tough times are right now: You are never alone. You have a place in life and together we gonna make sure it’s a safe one,” he added.

The short film, titled GOLDEN, shows a gold-coloured boy growing up in a series of short clips.

It depicts life, work and love getting progressively harder as he ages – until he finally finds other’s who are GOLDEN too.
