The fact that this incredible animated short film wasn’t even shortlisted for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short this year is a travesty. Also, the fact that barely anyone knows of its existence is also a travesty. This incredible, terse, and atmospheric recounting of a true story, is a chilling and unforgettable experience. The voice acting of Mark Pinter is incredible, as he perfectly captures the raw emotion of the Holocaust survivor who’s given the duty and the honor of capturing the architect of all the systematic slaughter. Some people may complain about the art style (the short is made up of a series of crude sketches that are animated so it looks like they’re being drawn), but honestly, there’s something so quaint, old-school and unobtrusive about it that gives it a certain charm. Plus, the well-acted narration is vivid enough, that more detailed animation just isn’t necessary, and the sketches do a good job of illustrating the story for us, on top of giving this short a unique presentation. If you’re able to get your hands on this (as of writing this, it’s available to watch on Amazon Prime in the US) I would highly recommend you check out this one of a kind experience as soon as humanly possible.
