International Competition Programme 6: Animated Documentaries 2 (15*)

London International Animation Festival 2018

Letting Go part of LIAF's Animated Documentaries 2

Persuasive, illustrative and able to get over abstract details in attractive and compelling ways, animation is the perfect tool to document someone’s vision of the truth.

These films feature subjects as diverse as two sisters struggling with infertility and an unexpected pregnancy, the possibilities of gene editing and body augmentation, a young child coming to terms with face blindness, a moving account from one of the last survivors of the Hiroshima atomic bomb explosion and a compilation of traumatic, but amusing confessions from former music school students.
