Another Day of Life

Jeszcze dzień życia

ALT | PIXL

Using revered Polish writer Ryszard Kapuściński’s front-line reporting as its basis, Damian Nenow and Raúl De La Fuente’s animated odyssey plunges us into the chaos of the bloody Angolan Civil War in 1975. As we ride shotgun with Kapuściński on a seemingly suicidal three-month road trip into the heart of darkness, we’re immersed in the swirling conflict through the graces of involving animation that recalls the rotoscoping technique of Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly. Seamlessly interweaving documentary sequences, Another Day of Life proves a similarly bad trip. In the face of such mayhem and suffering, we completely understand how Kapuściński might question the role of a journalist. Of course, his only recourse is to enter the fray a journalist and leave it a writer. Nenow and De La Fuente’s film captures that metamorphosis in staggering detail.

"Visually, the film is rarely less than spectacular, using 3D CGI techniques to create multi-layered, persuasively fluid and crisply detailed motion capture-based imagery: Whether it’s taking in sweeping aerial shots or the flies buzzing around a dead body in the road, it’s redolent of Waltz With Bashir in its combination of the comic illustration aesthetic with a heightened attention to realism."—Jonathan Holland, Hollywood Reporter
