Giveaway: ‘Birdboy: The Forgotten Children’ Flies to Blu-ray March 13

Blu-ray + DVD combo pack includes theatrical trailer, interview with the filmmakers, the original ‘Birdboy’ short, and the short film ‘Decorado’ by Alberto Vázquez.

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

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.

Winner of the Goya Award for Best Animated Feature (where co 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 Alberto Vázquez’s graphic novel and award-winning short film.

Bonus features include an interview with the filmmakers, the Birdboy original short film, the Decorado short film by Alberto Vázquez, and the theatrical trailer for the film.
