Vimy-Ridge

Damien Hess
2006 | 2 min
In this short animation Damien Hess attempts to connect with the tragedy of the First World War, a conflict that helped define Canada. In this film he uses imagery of the Canadian National Vimy Memorial monument in northern France to summon up names, faces and shadows that are fading from our memory.

This film was made as part of the third edition of the NFB's Hothouse apprenticeship.
