Behind the Front Lines
THIS PROGRAM IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. The horrors of war are revisited in these animated films.
In one short, Mercurio was a talented cyclist turned soldier. Captured by the Nazis once Italy capitulated, can he use his talents to make his escape? In a harrowing film exploring the after-effects of the Hiroshima bombing, Akiko recounts a story of tragedy as well as the human spirit. In the last short, sisters who survived a concentration camp bring their story to life.
