BIRDBOY: THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN

SHOWTIMES / BUY TICKETS
First show: January 12


There is light and beauty, even in the darkest of worlds. Stranded on an island in a post-apocalyptic world, teenager Dinky and her friends hatch a dangerous plan to escape in the hope of finding a better life. Meanwhile, her old friend Birdboy has shut himself off from the world, pursued by the police and haunted by demon tormentors. But unbeknownst to anyone, he contains a secret inside him that could change the world forever.

Based on his own graphic novel, Alberto Vázquez’s BIRDBOY: THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN is a darkly comic, mind-bending fantasy. Gorgeous graphic imagery brings to life a surreal and discordant world populated by adorable (and adorably disturbed) animated critters, searching for hope and love amid the ruin.

A film by Alberto Vázquez and Pedro Rivero. Spain. 2015. 76 min. DCP. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Psiconautas: Los Niños Olvidados

Birdboy y Dinki son dos adolescentes que han decidido escapar de una isla asolada por una catástrofe ecológica: Birdboy aislándose del mundo, Dinki emprendiendo un arriesgado viaje con la esperanza de que Birdboy la acompañe.

“Los personajes se mueven como el trazo de Vázquez requiere y el lenguaje visual de la película se impone como firme identidad estilística y no como fruto del pulso con posibilismos de producción” – Jordi Costa (Diario El País)
“Uno de los trabajos animados más personales y meritorios hechos en España en los últimos tiempos (…) Cine valiente y valioso, muy bien ilustrado, y que afronta de forma directa temas tabú en este cine.” Pablo González Taboada (Cinemanía)
