Today, I would like to share with you all an amazing short film by (produced, written, and starring) Ruby Rose titled “Break Free”. It always amazes me when artists are able to put so much into something without the need for words, dialogue, or overt explanation. The visual stands all on its own and is really powerful.

Ruby Rose is an Australian Model, DJ, Actress, and generally amazing person. She came out as a lesbian when she was 12 and was repeatedly assaulted by classmates, including being hospitalized at the age of 16. For two years straight, she was recognized as one of the 25 most influential gay/lesbian Australians. Her wikipedia page is here if you want to know more about her.

Oh yeah, and did you ever read any books by Roald Dahl? (Best known for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) Well, Rose is engaged to be married to his granddaughter, clothing designer Phoebe Dahl.

So here’s the video, enjoy.
