Polish Animation: More Festival Favorites

In 2008, the Oscar for best animated short film was given to the Polish-British coproduction Peter and the Wolf by Suzie Templeton, a spectacular puppet version of Sergei Prokofiev’s ballet. In 2011, Kamil Polak’s The Lost Town of Świteź, the extraordinary historical epic that combined oil paints with 3D animation, won top prize at Annecy for first feature. Our program of recent festival favorites also includes A Documentary Film, a portrait based on family interviews; Ichthys, a metaphorical examination of time passing; and Baths, with a surprising swim by two older women.
