Screened at a variety of global festivals before seeing a limited release in 2020, Anca Damian’s Marona’s Fantastic Tale (L’extraordinaire voyage de Marona) is unlike anything I’ve seen so far this year. The story itself is fairly simple: a dog, in the process of dying, recounts its life from pre-conception to present. What makes Marona not only aestheticly beautiful, but poignant and moving, is the blending of a variety of art styles to bring it all to life.
