“A completely hand-made historical micro-epic about the final minutes in the life of Winnipeg’s doomed Second World War hero, Andrew Mynarski (1916-1944). Combining wartime aviation melodrama with classical and avant-garde animation techniques (including stop-motion, silhouettes, bleaching, scratching, hand-painting and rubbing letratone patterns directly on the celluloid), Mynarski Death Plummet is a psychedelic photo-chemical war picture on the theme of self-sacrifice, immortality, and jellyfish.”

Directed by Matthew Rankin, 2014. Screened at over 35 film festivals including Toronto, Sundance, Annecy, and Ottawa.
