The Chimney Swift
Frédéric Schuld | Germany | 2020 | 5 min
The latest film by Frédéric Schuld, whose previous film Carlotta’s Face (2018) was screened at more than 200 festivals, is again an ani-doc. Schuld was inspired by a cruel practice that used to be the norm in England: small children were used as human chimney sweeps despite a very high risk of often tragic injuries. The result is a disturbing film revealing a practice that is almost forgotten today.
