Through My Thick Glasses

In Pjotr Sapegin's animated short, an old man tells his granddaughter of his experiences during the Second World War in an effort to distract her while putting on her winter hat. The tall tale is filled with strange characters, surprising plot twists and a world far beyond the little girl's comprehension. Using clay animation, the director takes a true story and gives it a tongue-in-cheek treatment. The film is dedicated to his mother.
