Two Animated Features from Uruguay: “Anina” and “Selkirk, The Real Robinson Crusoe”

Uruguay, a small South American country of slightly more than 3 million people, managed to complete two animated features last year. Anina, directed by Alfredo Soderguit, is a co-production between Montevideo, Uruguay-based Raindogs Cine and Cali, Colombia-based Antorcha Films. The film was accepted into this year’s Berlin Film Festival, which starts this week.

Selkirk, el verdadero Robinson Crusoe (Selkirk, the Real Robinson Crusoe) is a stop motion feature directed by Walter Tournier. Trailer is below with more information on the official website.

    I have never watched any movie from Uruguay, but I must admit that I might watch these two, they both look good and I am especially intrigued by ‘Anina’.
