Kartaszewicz’s first film depicts the life and work of filmmaker Quirino Cristiani (1896-1984), an Italian-Argentine animator, drawing artist, and comic book writer who created the world’s first animated film El apóstol (1917), and whose work is now almost entirely lost.

Panorama / Cinephilias

Together with the rolling pen and the fingerprinting system, Argentina was also the home of the first animated film in history. The Apostle was released in 1917 and the 58.000 frames were signed by Quirino Cristiani, who was not only a cartoon pioneer, but also the founder of the first nudist farm in South America. Clipping figures in black poster board and sewing their limbs together, he managed to make the cartoons dance to a song –he was also responsible for the first animated film with sound in 1931. “Disney is big, but I was the first one,” said this cartoonist who even rejected a job offer from Uncle Walt. Without a Trace navigates a pirate ship in search of those Cristiani treasures that were lost in a fire like the one in the Alexandria library. MD
