Take a look at the powerful trailer for "Another Day of Life". It's an animated documentary film based upon the writings of legendary war correspondent Ryszard Kapuscinski. A hero in Poland and to the world. The journalist wrote a feature on the civil war in Angola which lead to the country's independence in 1975.
This being July 4 we celebrate Independence Day in the USA when our country was born in 1776. This year is an election year and with all that involves especially in our current political climate it would be nice to see how the American flag was honored in 1939 in a Merry Melodies cartoon from Warner Bros featuring a very young Porky Pig and his recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.
Another masterful animated film from the French. This short deals with longing for a lost love who happens to attend the same party. Subject matter is mature so be careful if you're viewing this at work or in an inappropriate situation. "Aline" by Florian Perron from the Ecole Emile Cohl in Lyon.
