Directed, written and animated by Pixie Kolesa
Elizabeth-Antiqua is a short, animated documentary about Elizabeth Friedländer, the first woman to design a commercial Latin typeface. Friedländer made history while facing physical and professional peril in Nazi Germany. Elizabeth-Antiqua details her recorded life while harnessing animation's limitless potential to fill in the gaps recorded history has left us with. It’s a meticulously researched, whimsically animated piece — a refusal to forget the great women of history.
