A powerful animation documentary by Jonas Odell on a case of terrorism in the West Germany of the 70s. Watch Tussilago.

West German terrorist Norbert Kröcher was arrested on March 31, 1977. He was leading a group planning to kidnap politician Anna-Greta Leijon. A number of suspects were arrested in the days following. One of them was Kröcher's ex-girlfriend, "A". This is her story.

 

Tussilago, based on documentary interviews, and starring Malin Buska and Camaron Silverek, has an animation so elusive and sensitive as the subject-matter it chooses to represent. Being short of character metamorphosis, it chooses instead to multiply its characters indefinitely in all abstract environments possible. Tussilago lets the emotional story develop, and paints its surroundings with faceless agents, lost in the 'cause' they are meant to represent.

 Jonas Odell is a Swedish director at  Nexus Productions , who works at the cutting of edge of mixed media techniques combining 2D, 3D animation and live action. His music videos include Franz Ferdinand's 'Take Me Out' video, and recipient of the Golden Bear Berlinale award for his Never Like The First Time.
