A gripping animated feature for teen and adult viewers, “Birdboy: The Forgotten Children” explores a landscape of ecological disaster. But even in this darkest of places, light and beauty continue to exist. 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. Unbeknownst to anyone, Birdboy contains a secret inside him that could change the world forever. Based on his own graphic novel, co-director Alberto Vázquez’s “Birdboy” 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 ruins.
