Trailer for Tito on Ice.

To promote their comic book Bosnian Flat Dog (published by Seattle’s own Fantagraphics Books), Swedish artists Max Andersson and Lars Sjunnesson toured the countries of former Yugoslavia with a mummified Marshal Tito in a refrigerator. The book itself was based on a trip they took to an alternative comics convention in Sarajevo. Now comes the documentary, Tito on Ice, which takes Super 8 footage of their tour and animates it with cardboard cutouts and garbage and other recycled materials. The result is a surreal trip through the Balkans that is part promotion, part performance art, and part history of Marshal Tito and the dissolution of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. It’s also about the underground arts and music venues that popped up when the country split apart.
