The Old Man and the Sea Animated

In 1999, Alek­san­dr Petrov won the Acad­e­my Award for Short Film (among oth­er awards) for a film that fol­lows the plot line of Ernest Hem­ing­way’s clas­sic novel­la, The Old Man and the Sea (1952). As not­ed here, Petro­v’s tech­nique involves paint­ing pas­tels on glass, and he and his son paint­ed a total of 29,000 images in total. Rather incred­i­ble. Below, we present the 20 minute short. You’ll find this film list­ed in our col­lec­tion of Free Movies Online.
