Crime and Punishment

I was gobsmacked by Polish filmmaker Piotr Dumala’s extraordinary animated version of Dostoyevsky’s classic novel. This pared down version of the story is told without dialog and takes place entirely at night. Trained as an painter and sculptor, Dumala has an idiosyncratic animation style. He plasters panels, paints them in dark tones and then scrapes and sands images to create texture. Finally, he paints the scenes details.
