This is Water

American author David Foster Wallace, who died in 2008, has become one of the latest Youtube viral success stories. His May 2005 commencement address delivered to the graduating class at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, was published as a book in 2009 under the title, “This Is Water”. Portions of audio recording of his speech have been edited together and visualised in a short film of the same name, viewed by over five million times since its launch on May 6.
