The Sinking of the Lusitania
Earliest surviving documentary. Stunning animation - 25,000 drawings.
Surrealist stop-motion Czech film which influenced many animators thereafter.
An unflinching animated feature of George Orwell's novel. The politics is brutal and honest.
Entre Deux Soeurs
Animated film scratched directly onto 70mm film. A visually stunning film about the relationship between two isolated sisters.
Such a simple story but so engaging and terrifying.
Les Triplettes de Belleville
Stunning drawing animation and wonderfully original characters - a refreshing antidote to Disney.
An Angel at My Table
One of Jane Campion's greatest films.
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
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!
Thanks for this opportunity.
