Polish CG/VFX studio Platige Image, producer of acclaimed shorts such as Paths of Hate, Fallen Art, and The Cathedral, is currently in production on its first feature, Another Day of Life. The film will challenge audience’s perceptions of what types of stories can be told through animation. It is based on the book of the same name by renegade Polish journalist Ryszard Kapuściński, who, according to another one of his books that I own, “befriended Che Guevara, Salvador Allende, and Patrice Lumumba; witnessed twenty-seven coups and revolutions; and was sentenced to death four times.”
The film, an animation/live-action hybrid, will recount Kapuściński’s life-altering experiences during the Angolan Civil War in 1975. The directors attached to the project are Spanish filmmaker Raul de la Fuente (Nömadak Tx) and Platige’s Damian Nenow (Paths of Hate). Nenow and the producers of the film will discuss the project next week at Annecy.
