GKIDS and Shout! Factory announce the home video release of award-winning war film Another Day of Life, on Blu-ray + DVD on February 18 and digitally on February 4, with bonus features including a making-of featurette, a piece on creating the animated characters, and trailers. The film is available for pre-order now on Amazon and ShoutFactory.com.
An official Cannes selection and winner of festival prizes and awards worldwide, Another Day Of Life is a daringly ambitious dive into the chaos and carnage of war, based on the book by the journalist Ryszard “Ricardo” Kapuściński, one of the world’s most compelling chroniclers of conflict.
Intercutting a graphically bold animation style with interviews and archival footage, the visually striking film conveys a rare immediacy as it tells of the outbreak of civil war following Angola’s independence from Portugal in 1975. Against all advice, Kapuściński is intent on driving south into the heart of the bloody conflict to find the isolated rebel leader Farrusco. His animated trip through corpse-strewn roads conveys an undeniable urgency, while the documentary testimony reminds us that we are watching actual history.
The film is directed by Raúl De La Fuente & Damian Nenow, and written by Raúl De La Fuente & Amaia Remírez with Niall Johnson, David Weber and Damian Nenow, Another Day of Life is an official Spanish-Polish-German-Belgian co-production.
Home video bonus features are: Creating the Animated Characters, Making Of, and Trailers.
