Prayers For Peace (ages 10-18)
INDEPENDENT SHORT, AGES 12-18, ANIMATION. Runtime 8 minutes. DUSTY STUDIO
Synopsis: Narrative animation addressing the memory of a younger brother killed in the conflict in Iraq. Drawn entirely with pastels on a slate chalkboard, the materials used to create the animation become a metaphor for the impermanence and fragility of life.
Comments: This is a stunning piece that plays tribute to the filmmaker's brother who died in combat. It is stunningly beautiful from the visuals to the sentiment. Any family who has lost a member in combat would be appreciative of this work which resonates loud and clear. It belongs in any festival that honors our soldiers.
