Synopsis:
"Merciful Angel" is a short animated documentary about the NATO airstrikes which occurred in 1999 in the former republic of Yugoslavia. We are able to get a glimpse of the events through the eyes of two young boys and their family. Through the combination of 3D animation and 2D rotoscopy, we are able to observe almost lifelike characters in a documentary manner, and dream sequences that are able to convey the fear that came with the war situation unfolding.
