Sometime in the not too distant past, Swedish comic artists Max Andersson and Lars Sjunnesson were on a road trip through the former Yugoslavia.The action abruptly shifts from the sharp clarity of high-definition video to a stop-motion animation rendering of the scene, shot on super-8 film stock, with rough-hewn paper figures (presumably representing baffled border officials) gathering to gaze at Tito's effigy."Tito on Ice," Andersson and Ahonen's 2012 feature-length half-animated doc, depicts Andersson and Sjunnesson's tour of the former Yugoslavia to promote their comic book "Bosnian Flat Dog".As the film commences, the audience listens in on the conversation of animated versions of Sjunnesson and Andersson.Sjunnesson reports that the artists' Slovene hosts want them to bring Tito along with them. Andersson and Ahonen are among the festival's guests.It's said Andersson and Ahonen's sets have been devised from repurposed paper and cardboard (aka "garbage"), making "Tito on Ice" particularly timely – corresponding to the ongoing efforts of some Lebanese to coax the country's political class to provide basic services to its constituents.
