28th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Deep Nostalgia - The Anarchists
director: Brit Bunkley
original title: Deep Nostalgia - The Anarchists
country: New Zealand
running time: 4 min.
synopsisAt the beginning of the Spanish Civil War in 1936, much of Spanish territory was under anarchist rule for some time. This forgotten historical event is remembered through 3D animations of scans of demolished villages and moving photographs of anarchist supporters, which were “brought to life” with the help of the Deep Nostalgia™ tool.
“Anarchy strives towards a stateless order and mutual aid. Anarchism emphasises compassion, kindness, reason and equality. Adherents to anarchy ranged from Mahatma Gandhi to Bertrand Russell, from Helen Keller to Franz Kafka.”
