Back in 2011, writer/director Alex Kozobolis received what would end up being a very special photo from a friend. The photo was of a very unique tool used in the 20th century - a snail shell, used in polishing pottery, found in the North Algerian mountains. That photo ended up being the basis of a short story, which Kozobolis has turned into the wonderful short film Ghazala.

Now publicly available, Ghazala is an IndieGogo funded project about the innocuous tool and the many lives it unsuspectingly touches. Shot in the mountains of Greece, the 11-minute film can now also be had on DVD (although in very limited quantity). The edition includes director's commentary, behind the scenes shooting, and more. Shipping is also free for those who act now.

Otherwise, watch Ghazala below.
