An animated book trailer made in collaboration with Penguin Random House for their Vintage Classics Russians series. The film is a response to one of six of the greatest works of Russian literature published for the centenary of the Russian Revolution: 'Life and Fate' by Vasily Grossman.

'The drawing was brilliant. The thought that had gone into how figures were highlighted paid off fantastically. The film was sympathetic to the text, themes and characters. It was moving… a hard thing to pull off in such a short passage of film. Genius.' (Creative Review)
