THE CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED WAR DRAMA
ANOTHER DAY OF LIFE
ON BLU-RAY™ + DVD FEBRUARY 18, 2020
AVAILABLE DIGITALLY ON FEBRUARY 4, 2010
“…not just another war-is-hell story, but a powerfully thorny war-journalism-is-hell tale too.”
– Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
“A visually striking piece of rare immediacy and power”
– Jonathan Holland, Hollywood Reporter
GKIDS and Shout! Factory present the award-winning war film Another Day of Life on Blu-ray™ + DVD on February 18, 2020, and digitally on February 4, with bonus features including a making of featurette, a piece on creating the animated characters, and trailers.
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.
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.
