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 Haunting Pleasure… A Magnificent Achievement in Animation.»
— Andrew Mack, ScreenAnarchy

«You’d be hard-pressed to find anything as original or surprisingly poignant.» — Dennis Harvey, Variety

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.

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

Presented by RoxCine.
