Program Note

Croatia on January 7th, 1992. Amid the Yugoslav Wars, a young reporter is found dead in the uniform of an international mercenary group. After 20 years, director and animator Anja reorganizes her cousin Chris’s last moments into an animation on the bases of his journal and people’s testimonies. The film delicately illustrates the moments of pain and chaos that the young mercenary-turned reporter might have felt before death. It shows a brilliant sense of direction and a high quality of hand-drawn animation.
