In this finale to his acclaimed twentieth-century trilogy, Theodore Ushev continues to brilliantly draw from his graphic design background, referencing Russian constructivist elements to imbue this 3D animation with potent and thrilling energy. The “ Invasion ” theme from Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7 forms the backdrop to an explosive collage of the visual connections between art and war.
