The Association of Greek Animation Artists (ASIFA Hellas) in cooperation with greekanimation.com celebrates 70 years of Greek creative animation.
On the occasion of this event, we present the first short animated film in Greece (1945) – ‘Il Duce Narrates’, an anti-war short animated film by Stamatis Polenakis.
The animator made the drafts in Sifnos island in 1942, during the italian occupation. After Greece’s liberation in 1945, Polenakis moved in Athens. Together with Papadoukas and Merevidis, the filming process began.
The film was virtually buried until 1980, when it was discovered and promoted to the public.
