It's back to school season, and we're guessing you're dragging your feet to hop back on the learning wagon (yes, teens, we've seen your Tweets about dreading the first day of school).

But watch this video by director/producer Rick Mereki, and you'll be squirming to learn more about ... anything. The short but stunning artistic video will remind you how enriching learning is -- regardless of the skill, knowledge or experience, and regardless of your age.

LEARN is one of a series of three videos Mereki produced (if you liked this one, you should check out the other two, EAT and MOVE, too). The three videos together celebrate life through movement, eating and learning. Mereki writes that production took:

3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage... all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ....into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films..... = a trip of a lifetime.

move, eat, learn

...For life, might we add?
