After winning the Cartoon Movies European Producer of the Year Award, the San Sebastian-based production company KANAKI FILMS will travel to the Cannes Film Festival with the Another Day of Life, selected for the Official Selection, out of competition.

This animated film is a European co-production based on the eponymous novel by the famous Polish reporter Ryszard Kapuscinski. Directed by Raúl de la Fuente and Damian Nenow (Poland) and produced by Amaia Remírez, the film will premiere in Cannes, and be released in cinemas by the Navarre distributor GOLEM in the last half of the year.

The animated film stars Kapuscinski, Polish journalist, idealist and friend of lost causes. In 1975 he travels to the war in Angola, where young soldiers from Cuba, Russia, South Africa, Portugal and Angola fight a forgotten war of global repercussions. Kapuscinski embarks on a suicide journey into the heart of darkness. Angola and the people he meets there, like the young guerrilla fighter Carlota, will change him forever.

Another Day of Life is produced with the participation of TVE, ETB and Movistar + and with support from ICAA, the Basque Government and the Government of Navarra.

Kanaki Films has produced numerous shorts and feature films, including Minerita, finalist for the 88th edition of the Oscars and winner of the Goya for the Best Spanish Documentary Short Film in 2014. Every year, the Cartoon Tributes awards acknowledge the most important contributions to the development of the animation industry in Europe.
