Agnieszka Kruczek "Wojna" - "War"
Agnieszka Kruczek's short film, "Wojna" for UNICEF is finely drawn in black and white (initially at least) and is a quite frightening story of a schoolgirl hiding from the military in a war zone. There is a real sense of menace in the animation particularly directed towards an innocent young child. There is some detail about the creator here but I should emphasise the part of the music played and composed by Agnieszka's fellow student Vladimir Martinka from Slovakia. The piercingly evocative violin sets exactly the right tone. Chief-of-production was Andreas Perzl from Germany. Agnieszka is from Poland though she studied in Germany.
