" Winsor McCay NR | 20 July 1918 | 12 min | Animation, Short The Sinking of the 'Lusitania' is a silent animated short film by American cartoonist Winsor McCay. It is a work of propaganda re-creating the never-photographed 1915 sinking of the British liner RMS Lusitania. At twelve minutes it has been called the longest work of animation at the time of its release. The film is the earliest surviving animated documentary and serious, dramatic work of animation."

"DIR: Winsor McCay SUMMARY: An animated documentary on the 1915 sinking of the Lusitania by a German U-Boat, an act that killed 1,198 people. WHY IT'S HERE: 'The Sinking of the Lusitania' was a pet project for Winsor McCay, markedly different from his previous work. A far cry from the comic lightness of 'Gertie the Dinosaur', 'The Sinking of the Lusitania' was the first animated documentary, a piece of propoganda that was nearly two years in the making. The result is a startling work, present"
