“Another Day Of Life” is a gripping story of a three-month-long trip that renowned reporter Ryszard Kapuściński took across Angola ravaged by a war which the front lines shifted like a kaleidoscope from one day to the next. This feature animated film is based on Ryszard Kapuściński’s book “Another Day Of Life”. Just like the readers of the literary original, the audience will begin their journey with Kapuściński in 1975 Luanda, the capital of Angola. The country is in the midst of decolonization efforts, launched after the success of the Carnation Revolution. Portuguese nationals are hurriedly fleeing the more glamorous districts of Luanda. Terrified by the possibility of a full-on attack on the capital, they’re busy packing their belonging into wooden crates. Shops are closing down, law enforcement is gradually disappearing from the streets, heaps of garbage bags are slowly taking over the Angolan capital. Kapuściński keeps sending daily cables to the Polish Press Agency from the emptying city.
