Psiconautas, the forgotten children

Spain, France 2015, 80’
Dir: Alberto Vázquez, Pedro Rivero

Birdboy and Dinky are two teenagers living on an island devastated by an environmental catastrophe. After the cataclysmic event, Birdboy has retreated to live isolated in the forest, unaware that Dinky has decided to undertake a perilous journey in search of a better place. Birdboy must battle his inner demons if he wants to join Dinky in time to help her in her adventure and save himself.

Goya Award-winning directors Pedro Rivero and Alberto Vázquez manage to craft an immersive environment with troubled characters, finding poetry where many wouldn’t dare to.
