Film Short
Sapegin, Pjotr. "Through My Thick Glasses." National Film Board of Canada, 2003.
This is a gem of a short in claymation which is used in my school in a class on animation but could also be used to talk about storytelling devices and has WWII and resistance as part of its content. It was screened at Sundance in 2005 and won a few awards obscure to the general public. 12 and a half minutes long, viewable online, and click the link for a teaching guide in English and French. --J.
