Pärnography (2005)

Original title: Mees animatsoonist

Documentary Duration 52:00

Priit Pärn is an animator of international renown, graphic artist, caricaturist and book illustrator whose works are utterly grotesque, absurd and funny. Additionally, they are critical of the society, piercing the deepest levels of human consciousness. A closer examination of Pärn and other Estonian animators reveals that Estonia was not sung or fought to freedom. It was liberated via animation!
