Little Fiel (Short)

Directed by Irina Patkanian

Mozambique, Russia
2017,15 min

“Little Fiel” is a stop motion animation/ documentary that is loosely based on the life story of Mozambican artist Fiel dos Santos who grew up during the 16-year civil war. Fiel created eight figures representing his family from dismantled civil war guns. Three New York artists turned them into puppets and created immersive stop-motion animation, inspired by Fiel’s memories. “Little Fiel” tells a universal story of peaceful people who have been coerced, conscripted and enticed into killing. It is a personal act of resistance and hope.

Followed by AKASHA.
