Showtimes & Tickets

Screened December 15–28, 2017

One of the most striking and original hand-drawn animated films of recent years, this tonally unpredictable vision of life after the apocalypse was adapted by Alberto Vásquez from his own graphic novel. Following an industrial disaster, a group of animals—including a mouse, a rabbit, a fox, and the titular bird—leave their home and contend with the criminal and the supernatural forces, while facing their individual inner demons. A GKIDS release. 

Screenings preceded by: Decorado (Alberto Vásquez, 11m): The world is a wonderful stage, but its characters are disgraceful. Winner of Best Animated Short Film at the Goya Awards.
