TITO ON ICE

To promote their book BOSNIAN FLAT DOG, Swedish comics creators Max Andersson and Lars Sjunnesson tour the countries of former Yugoslavia with a mummyfied Marshal Tito in a refrigerator. Watching border controls turn into improvised snapshot sessions, admiring mutant iron-curtain Disney toys, buying souvenir grenade shell handicrafts and discovering sniper art in blown-out apartments, they find that truth may indeed be stranger than fiction.

Max Andersson’s feature film début operates on multiple levels to achieve a rare synthesis of form and content. The combination of an animated crumbling, fragmentary trashland shot in grainy black and white super 8 mixed with documentary Mini-DV looks like nothing else but seems perfectly natural.

A roller coaster ride through a parallel universe where all borders are disintegrating – at the same time tragic, poetic and hilariously funny.
