'Birdboy' Flies to Blu-ray and DVD March 13

Award-winning feature from directors Alberto Vázquez and Pedro Rivera includes bonus original short films. 

'Birdboy: The Forgotten Children' comes to Blu-ray and DVD March 13.

LOS ANGELES -- Birdboy: The Forgotten Children will be released March 13 in a Blu-ray and DVD combo pack by GKIDS and Shout! Factory, with bonus features including the highly decorated short film Decorado from co-director Alberto Vázquez.

Winner of the Goya Award for Best Animated Feature (where Vázquez won the Best Animated Short Film prize in the same year for Decorado) and full of unforgettable characters, Birdboy: The Forgotten Children is a darkly comic, beautiful and haunting tale of coming of age in a world gone to ruin. Gorgeous graphic imagery brings to life a surreal and discordant world populated by adorable animated critters, searching for hope and love in the story based on Vázquez’s graphic novel and award-winning short film.

Vázquez and Pedro Rivera directed the movie.

There is light and beauty, even in the darkest of worlds. 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. But unbeknownst to anyone, he contains a secret inside him that could change the world forever.

Bonus Features:

  • Interview with the Filmmakers
