Client: The Unofficial Man
Watchers of The Sky is an award winning documentary that weaves four stories of remarkable courage, compassion and determination together, while setting out to uncover the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin - the man who created the word "genocide". This internal graphic sequence depicts Lemkin's thought process and shows how he formulated the word Genocide, pouring over his notebooks in search of an idea and re-visiting heinous crimes of the past.
Watchers of The Sky received the "U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Animation" at Sundance Film Festival during it's opening screening.
