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.»

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