Another Day of Life is a moving story about a unique journalist’s three-month long journey in war-torn Angola at the time of the country’s declaration of independence. The animated film is based on Ryszard Kapuscinski’s book Another Day of Life. It´s 1975 and Kapuscinski, an experienced and idealist journalist, is working at the Polish Press Office in Warsaw. He succeeds in convincing his boss to send him to Angola, where a bloody civil war has broken out just before the country’s independence. Kapuscinski once again witnesses the wicked reality of war and detects a sense of helplessness that he previously had not known. Angola will change him forever: it was a reporter who left Poland, but it was a writer who returned.
