To some critics, Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper” was little more than neoconservative talking points tacked onto the silver screen: it glorified murderers, dehumanized victims, and ultimately presented war in a positive light. This animated short, “Confusion Through Sand”, casts a dark shadow on that vision, telling the story of a 19-year-old thrust into armed conflict and the toll it took on him. The hand-drawn short, made by animation studio Ornana films, required 6,000 pieces of paper to complete and premiered at South by Southwest.
