DFW’s famous commencement speech has been turned into a short film.
If you have never read or listened to any of the late David Foster Wallace’s writing, this is a great place to start.
It’s only nine minutes long and it’s one of those things that I include in my (not written down) life manifesto.
“This is Water” is a brilliant speech about life after college, the tedium of adulthood, and how we are supposed to handle it even though we are all outrageously stressed and annoyed sometimes.
This speech changed my life and now it can change yours in beautiful short film form.
