Winning the Special Distinction of the Jury at last year’s Animanima festival, this film proves how powerful and moving animation can be. Director Filipe Abranches portrays an atmosphere of abject horror in the muddy, pestiferous trenches of WWI, as mustard gas swirls around the grim, desolated fields, littered with the damned and the dead.
