“Little Fiel” is a stop motion animation/documentary about the unending civil war. It that tells a universal story of peaceful people who have been coerced, conscripted and enticed into killing each other. It is based on the life story of Mozambican artist Fiel dos Santos who grew up during the 16 year old civil war – another proxy war equipped and sustained by conflicting foreign powers. Fiel created all figures for the animation from dismantled AK47s and M16s. Three New York artists turned them into puppets and animated.
