Animania: Season Two - Broadcast 7

Top of page

The civil war in Nicaragua is described by the children of that country through their words and drawings, based on their experiences in Nicaragua and the refugee camps. This film was adapted from an exhibition entitled Disrupted Lives which was organized by Linda Dale and sponsered by INTER-PARES and CUSO.

Viola writes novels in a darkened room. Marie, her sister and only companion, takes care of her every need. Together, they are an island unto themselves, quiet and complete in their isolation. And then the abrupt arrival of a stranger throws their tenuous order into chaos. An animated short etched directly onto tinted 70 mm film.

1999, 21 min 30 s
