Through My Thick Glasses
Film  (12:31) 2003, director: Pjotr Sapegin
Description
An old man tells his granddaughter his personal story of the Second World War. Brimming with strange characters, his tale conjures up a world beyond the little girl's comprehension. Director Pjotr Sapegin has taken a true story and transformed it into a tongue-in-cheek epic peopled with clay puppets. The animated short is dedicated to Sapegin's mother.
