Short of the Week: “A Greek Tragedy”
Sep 9, 2020

Like many of the shorts we’ve shared, A Greek Tragedy is about much more than meets the eye—or in this case, three lady statues holding on to the remains of an ancient building. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Short at the 59th Oscars, this 1985 Belgian treat was written and directed by Nicole Van Goethem and produced by Willem Thijssen and Linda Van Tulden. It also includes music from a trio of Jan Boonen, Luc Redig, and Rudi Renson. Click the link above to watch.
