Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest
I want to share with you a powerful video experience. The fact that it only consumes about one minute makes it all the more remarkable, when you consider that it represents thousands of lives and traumatic months, days, and years that they experience. Jud Newborn narratesIngrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest eloquently. It’s remarkable how even a scene in which you’re looking over the trees and grounds has a movement that is sensitive and truly supports the message. This is the commentary I wrote to Jud Newborn:
I must tell you that I was deeply moved by the animated short Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest. One of the great skills in communication, whether it be written or visual, is to be able to transmit a powerful message in a few words or a brief amount of time. This is one of the finest representations of such. It is brilliant. It is truly heart wrenching, all the more so because of the sensitivity communicated through a youngster’s cartoons. That to me is a stroke of genius. I must tell you that to climax it with the voice and words of Winston Churchill says it all. This to me is an example that needs to be shed to the free world today, to parents and teachers on how important it is to study and reflect upon history. It is deplorable and a scathing criticism on our educational system and our political figures and leaders that they have growingly tended to ignore, if not forget, history. I can’t compliment you enough on these two moving and brilliant pieces.
