‘Another Day Of Life’ Depicts Civil War With Mind-Bending Animation
by Tito W. James
I’ve said it before, but GKids is turning into the best resource for prestige adult animation. Another Day of Life combines archival footage with cell-shaded animation to deliver a riveting story about Angola’s civil war in 1975.
The animations depict the chaos through surrealism reminiscent of Inception. In an industry overrun with nostalgic cash-grabs and thinly-veiled advertisements it’s great to see a film that recognizes the transformative potential of animation.
Another Day Another Life will screen in select theaters September 13th.
