Crulic - The Path to Beyond
Crulic - Weg ins Jenseits
Directed by:

Claudiu Crulic, a young Romanian migrant, is imprisoned in Poland in 2008 for a theft he did not commit. In a documentary-like manner the film tells the true and moving story of Crulic's desperate fight for justice as he embarks on a hunger strike. Exploring a wide variety of animation techniques intertwined with real photography, the director discovers an innovative way to give a voice to the voiceless.
