The tale of a quest to free Napoleon Bonaparte from exile on the island of St Helena, including fresh insight into the mystery of The Emperor's pickled private parts.
Animation & Artists Moving Image 2001 4 mins
A watercolour animation about Napoleon Bonaparte. It is a tale of courage and war, heartbreak, death and pickled private parts. Comic colour capers as we learn the tabloid tale of Bonaparte and his not-so bony part. A sensual wash from Waterloo to auctioneers as his pickled portion goes under the hammer. History was never this persuasive. History was never this.
