2016 | Germany | Sandra Schießl | ★★★

Based on the children's book by Bat-Sheva Dagan, Chika, the Dog from the Ghetto, a lovingly crafted mixed-media animated short film from Sandra Schießl, provides a mildly engaging child's-eye view of life in the Radom Ghetto at the end of the Second World War.


"Chika the dog and the five-year old Mikasch live in a Jewish ghetto in an unnamed Polish city. The little dog helps Mikasch to develop as a child despite the persecution of the Jews by the Germans." Festival Scope
