Having made short films during the 1980’s, comic creator Max Andersson makes his feature film debut with »Tito on Ice«.

The film stars Andersson and his colleague Lars Sjunnesson, as they travel trough the countries of former Yugoslavia to promote their comic book »Bosnian Flat Dog«. In their car, they bring the mummified Marshal Tito in a refrigerator. On the road with the chilled Tito, Andersson, and Sjunnesson meet comic creators from Serbia, poster artists from Croatia and other influential figures in the post-Yugoslav alternative culture scene. Through art and independent culture, the filmmakers revisit and illuminate the collective subconscious
of the Balkan.

»Tito on Ice« is an experimental film, mixing live documentary scenes with stop motion sequences shot on Super 8. In certain scenes the characters are constructed out of wastepaper, cardboard boxes and garbage. Yet, all this closely relates to the dark, underground style, which also distinguishes Andersson’s drawings. The mix of styles and techniques results in a film where dream, drawing and reality overlap.
