We’re proud to present BIRDBOY: THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN, a Spanish language, animated feature film.

 

Co-directed by Best Animated Short Film winner, Alberto Vázquez, this film follows a group of friends set out to escape the dangerous post-apocalyptic world they live in and in the process discover that one of them holds a secret that could change the world forever.

 

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 a graphic novel and short film by co-director Alberto Vázquez and winner of the Goya Award for Best Animated Feature (where Vázquez won Best Animated Short Film in the same year), Birdboy: The Forgotten Children is a darkly comic, beautiful and haunting tale of coming of age in a world gone to ruin.
