Grave of The Fireflies Director: Isao Takahata (1988,) 89 mins
Animated film about the end of the war and the after-effects of

it can’t work with real actors.

Very quirky, beautifully made and thought-provoking.

Oscar nominated. Story of North Wales farmer trying
to protect his farm and family at start of WW1,
whilst also trying to win the Bardic Chair.

Insyriated Director: Philippe Van Leeuw (2017), 90 mins
A mother attempts to keep her family safe as war rages
and a sniper lies in wait outside her home. This nerve-
wracking study of life in Damascus won an Audience
Award at Berlinale.
