Gary Baseman x Die Antwoord Animated Short

 

Here's one we never saw coming...

This animated short is called "The Buckingham Warrior", and is a tale inspired by Gary Baseman's father Ben Baseman who survived the holocaust, fighting the Nazi invasion in Ukraine's birch tree forests for almost 4 years. Baseman and Director David Charles transformed his father's harsh reality into a whimsical story of survival and hope, which was animated by Peter Markowski and scored by South-African duo Die Antwoord.

Yep. Gary Baseman x Die Antwoord. Amazing.
