'Rebirth' Is a Stunning Animated Movie Celebrating the Independence of Poland

'Rebirth' Is a Stunning Animated Movie Celebrating the Independence of Poland

Polish studios Juice and Tengent have collaborated to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Poland's independence with a short animated movie.

'Rebirth' is a story about the work of many generations of Poles in regaining Poland’s independence in 1918. Thanks to their patriotism, faith, courage, and love for their own culture, they managed to survive the 123 years of Partitions as a nation.

"Our history has taught us to celebrate freedom as there were days we were not even on the map. 'Rebirth' shows a metaphorical journey through a few moments of our long way to independence. To us, it was also one of the toughest animations we have ever created. But all the sleepless nights were rewarded with the final piece, made of 36,000 rendered frames," says the director Marcin Karolewski. 

'Rebirth' is also a story about today’s Poland: about its roots and the potential driving force for the Polish people for the next hundred years of independence.
