Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

Teenagers Birdboy and Dinki have decided to escape from an island devastated by ecological catastrophe: Birdboy by shutting himself off from the world, Dinki by setting out on a dangerous voyage in the hope that Birdboy will accompany her. Aimed at young and adult audiences, this feature animation is an atypical work using the typical iconography of cartoon series to tell an intense poetic and social story. It tells the struggle of Dinky and Birdboy, trying to escape the suffocating atmosphere of the island where they live – a place that lost its entire splendour following of a terrible industrial accident.
