And We Were Young

Themes: , ,
Program: SDFF 2017

Narrated with the words of the men who survived, brought to life with thousands of individual paper cutouts, And We Were Young is an animated oral history of American soldiers, a story of the ‘Doughboys’ in France in the last months of the Great War. Filmed in luminous Ektachrome on an old Russian Super 8 camera, the film is both brutal and beautiful; a painting of an unforgettable picture of the “War to End All Wars.”
