Gary Baseman X Die Antwoord - Buckingham Warrior animation!

The Buckingham Warrior  a figure created by Gary Baseman and produced by The Loyal Subjects, continues to be relevant months after it's released... and rightfully so because the story behind it is so profound. It tells a tale inspired by Gary Baseman's father Ben Baseman who survived the holocaust, fighting the Nazi invasion in Ukraine's birch tree forest's for almost 4 years... and the folks over at MOCAtv, along with  Baseman and Director David Charles, transformed this stories harsh reality into a whimsical story of survival and hope, which was animated by Peter Markowski and scored by South-African duo Die Antwoord. This video was created on the occasion of the exhibition Gary Baseman: The Door Is Always Open, organized by the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles... give it a watch, and enjoy the animation.
