Berona’s War is an in-progress, short film based off the graphic novel Berona’s Hundred Year War. A fledgling and naive fighter is captured when his village is ambushed and set ablaze by the ferocious and marauding Cropone. Forced into enslavement, his captors are both brutal and loving; though he is Ele-Alta. As he becomes the most skilled warrior in the Cropone village, he is freed in a heroic and self-defining act. His future is his to pursue as he is torn between the path of revenge and forgiveness.
Berona’s Hundred Year War is the creation of Jesse Labbé and Anthony Coffey.
