The animated documentary feature-length Crulic – The Path to Beyondtells the life’s story of Crulic, a 33-year-old Romanian who died in a Polish prison while on hunger strike. The acclaimed Romanian actor, Vlad Ivanov, narrates Crulic’s ironic voice-over from beyond the grave. A strong visual style, the result of beautiful hand drawn, collage, stop-motion and cut-out animation techniques, blend to create a striking, surprisingly integrated and memorable film.
