This chilling documentary is “narrated” by Claudiu Crulic, a young Romanian in Poland who was arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, only to become a pawn in a Kafkaesque miscarriage of justice that resulted in his death from a hunger strike. Combining innovative hand-drawn, cutout, and collage animation techniques, director Anca Damian crafts a devastating portrait of a man who stood up to an unfeeling bureaucracy—and paid the ultimate price. (Anca Damian, Romania, 2011, 73 min.) In Romanian with English subtitles
