TITO ON ICE

DIRECTOR: Helena Ahonen, Max Andersson - SWEDEN

To promote their comic book Bosnian Flat Dog, Swedish artists Max Andersson and Lars Sjunnesson toured the countries of the former Yugoslavia with a mummified Marshal Tito in a refrigerator. Now comes the documentary, which takes Super-8mm footage of their tour and animates it with cardboard cutouts, garbage, and other recycled materials. The result is a surreal trip through the Balkans that is part promotion, part performance art, and part history of Marshal Tito and the dissolution of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. Through it all, there is a comics creator’s eye at work. Live-action interviews suddenly switch to animation, which is like moving from one panel to the next in a comic book. Altogether, a joyous trip through the war-torn subconscious of an underground artist. (77 mins.)
