For “To This Day,” the spoken-word artist Shane Koyczan worked with dozens of animators, who each illustrated roughly 20-second segments of his eponymous poem about the bullying he and others experienced growing up.
It’s a beautiful, powerful film. Find a few minutes and watch it, and learn more about the project at Koyczan’s website, where you will find the text of the poem. An MP3 of the poem is also available.
