'This compilation will be welcomed by both the growing number of enthusiasts who now regularly use short-fiilms in their teaching and those wishing to enrich their practice by introducing short films for the first time....Gravity examines notions of responsibility and consequence through a narrative featuring teenage boys and guns. It is difficult to imagine a group of students who would not be engaged by the film's strong topical appeal and direct visual impact.'
