Every time we see an animation that experiments with a wide variety of cinematic formulas, we are delighted. ‘The Battle of Lake George‘ is one of the recent surprises in this genre, offering an animated short documentary on the events of the 18th century in the Province of New York. Andrew Kouropoulos takes the best of the language of animation to give us a project that is as consistent and educational as it is dynamic. Thus, although the extremely dense historical resources he articulates are not necessarily intended for very young viewers, his short film has the necessary attractiveness to capture the attention of quite a generous palette of audience. At the same time, despite the somewhat naive visual interface, it is more than evident that the entire creative team put in a significant documentary effort. In other words, the director provides not only an accurate discourse for the chosen stakes but also precise visual details that contextualize, for example, the clothing of the armies involved or portraiture details representative of the historical figures to whose names this event is linked, such as William Johnson and Baron Dieskau.
