Another Day of Life

Damian Nenow, Raúl de la Fuente
Poland, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Hungary 2018 / 84’
A Coach’s Daughter

Taking an example from Ari Folman and his Oscar-nominated Waltz with Bashir, Raúl de la Fuente and Damian Nenow take on a book by Ryszard Kapuściński published in 1976 and, in a sharply drawn animation, sketch a picture of the devastating war in Angola. Supplemented with documentary inserts, the film quickly turns into a story about Kapuściński and the choices he made in the period just before Angola gained independence. There were situations where he was sure he wouldn't survive. And every day he would say with relief: Another day of life is behind me, and one more ahead of me, but no more. The directors pay close attention to his words, while also searching for the truth beyond the pages of his book. Speaking with people he described, they conduct their own investigation-keeping in mind that, to understand the modern world, you have to use a moving globe.
