Birdboy and Dinky decide to leave their island after an ecological catastrophe. Birdboy has been living in isolation for quite some time, contacting his friends only occasionally. Dinky, manifesting her teenage rebellion, stops taking the antidepressants her parents are serving her. The island is a cabinet of curiosities, where no one can feel safe. “Psiconautas” is a film adaptation of the Basque comic book under the same name by Alberto Vázquez. His previous animations “Birdboy” and “Unicorn Blood” were screened during Ars Independent’s previous editions.
