Thursday 7 March 2019 - New Zealand Polish Film Festival in Wellington is thrilled to announce the award-winning and kaleidoscopic animated feature film, ANOTHER DAY OF LIFE, based on the experiences of renowned veteran journalist Ryszard Kapuściński, will open the New Zealand Polish Film Festival on Wednesday 3rd April at Roxy Cinema, Miramar Wellington.


Winner of Best Animated Film at the European Film Awards, and Directed by Oscar-shortlisted filmmakers Raúl De La Fuente and Damian Nenow, the authentically dramatic hybrid of documentary and animated memoir will start the five-day festival in early April.


ANOTHER DAY OF LIFE is a gripping story of a three-month-long trip that renowned Polish reporter Ryszard Kapuściński took across Angola ravaged by a war in which the front lines shifted like a kaleidoscope from one day to the next. This feature animated film is based on Ryszard Kapuściński’s book ‘Another Day Of Life’.

ANOTHER DAY OF LIFE is produced by Platige Films & Kanaki Films and co-produced by Walking the Dog, Animations Fabrik and Wüste Film Puppetworks.
