The Sinking of the Lusitania

1918 USA

Earliest surviving documentary. Stunning animation - 25,000 drawings.


1982 Czechoslovakia

Surrealist stop-motion Czech film which influenced many animators thereafter.

Animal Farm

1954 United Kingdom

An unflinching animated feature of George Orwell's novel. The politics is brutal and honest.

Entre Deux Soeurs

1991 Canada

Animated film scratched directly onto 70mm film. A visually stunning film about the relationship between two isolated sisters.


1971 USA

Such a simple story but so engaging and terrifying.

Les Triplettes de Belleville

2002 France, Canada, Belgium, United Kingdom

Stunning drawing animation and wonderfully original characters - a refreshing antidote to Disney.

An Angel at My Table

1990 New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom

One of Jane Campion's greatest films.

Oh Willy


Wonderful stop-motion animated film with puppets made of felt. These directors make such poignant films that make you laugh and move you. Many animators since this film have started using felt as an animation tool.

Reci, Reci, Reci


A drawn animated film about miscommunication between men and women. Beautiful design in the Czech graphic design tradition.

Rita, Sue and Bob Too

1986 United Kingdom

A wonderful British film set in Bradford with a screenplay by Andrea Dunbar. The characters are all strong and so well observed. British comedy at its gritty realist best!
