To promote their book BOSNIAN FLAT DOG, comics creators Max Andersson and Lars Sjunnesson decide to tour the countries of former Yugoslavia with a mummyfied Marshal Tito in a refrigerator.

Watching as border control checks turn into improvised snapshot sessions, admiring mutant iron-curtain Disney toys, buying souvenir grenade shell handicrafts and discovering sniper art in blown-out apartments, they find that truth may indeed be stranger than fiction.

A combination of stop-motion animation and documentary scenes, the film turns into a roller coaster ride through a parallel universe where all borders are disintegrating – at the same time tragic, poetic and bleakly funny.

TITO ON ICE was awarded the Grand Prize for best feature at the Ottawa International Animation Festival in 2013 and Best Feature Film at BeThere! Animation Festival in 2014.
