“Birdboy is an anthology of nightmares compressed into a picture book.” – A.O. Scott, The New York Times

“The darkest and most daring hand-drawn animated movie of the year.” – Indiewire

“Among the many vastly more expensive, live-action dystopian visions of recent cinema, you’d be hard-pressed to find anything as original or surprisingly poignant” – Dennis Harvey, Variey

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. Recommended only for teens and adults.

SPECIAL GIVEAWAY!

When you pick up or buy your ticket to Birdboy at the box office, you will receive one of these adorable enamel pins of Birdboy and Dinky. Limited edition. Starting opening night and only while supplies last!

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)
