Drawn From Memory

by Paul Fierlinger

Drawn From Memory is terribly affecting as one young man's efforts to escape not just the tyranny of a country but also of a father- John J. O'Conner, New York Times

Using traditional cel-animation with watercolor backgrounds and charcoal and pencil sketches to recreate a historical era, Fierlinger evokes what are clearly lasting images from his childhood. Drawn From Memory is at times a touching memoir and at others a sincere effort to deal with painful recollections, and it never fails to stimulate the senses with it's sheer artistry.
