Description

“We fight so that someday, we will not need to.” Battles – Big & Small is a collection of eight hard-hitting short films about the conflicts that arise in this life; conflicts that are internal and external, big and small. Stories of wars, literal and figurative, bring us clarity on the reasons, and perhaps cloud the logic of that reasoning just a bit more.


Through animation, narrative, and documentary, and told in tones ranging from light and delightful, to dark and deadly serious, each film explored the fights that we chose, and the ones forced on us. We see characters fighting uncaring systems, personal philosophies, deadly fires, and the inevitability of nature. These battles all have consequences, and it’s those consequences that make these stories so important.
