Someone please put me out of my misery - I'm trying to find the name of a short film about a captured confederate soldier about to be hanged. By some miracle, the rope snaps and for the next 20 mins or so the film follows his desperate race to escape back home. He finally comes across a clearing in the woods and sees his home in the distance with his wife in the garden. They see eachother and run across the field, when just as they are about to touch eachother, his body is snapped back, to be seen hanging from the rope. His whole escape being a dream contained in his last few seconds before excecution.
Great film, but can't remember what it was called. I think it was an award winner of sorts.

That's it! That's it! Thanks a lot.
Next question, is it still available?
