Cinzia Angelini's MILA socially relevant CG animated short film with a unique look

Still from MILA Animated Movie

Glendale, CA, October 27, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / PRWEB) "Mila" is Cinzia Angelini’s animated short, that is anything but a standard cartoon. It’s not only socially relevant, but faces the challenge of seeking out non-commercial, independent funding. Angelini is determined however, and tenacious, and explains her decision.

“The tragedy of War unfortunately did not end with the children of World War II. Even today, children continue to suffer from the ravages of conflict in many places around the world. It is their current plight that moves me to take action.” To that end, she strives to produce "Mila", and present the most tragic collateral damage of War as its theme – the youngest civilians. “Though often overlooked and rarely mentioned by the media,” says Angelini, “civilians are the first to be hit, and their children, the last to be remembered.”
