Psiconautas (Psychonauts), a new 78-minute Spanish animated feature directed by Alberto Vazquez, will premiere this week at the 63rd annual edition of the prestigious San Sebastian Film Festival.
Watch the trailer below:
Based on a comic of the same name by Vazquez, Psychonauts follows two teenagers — Birdboy and Dinki — who decide to escape an island that has been devastated by ecological catastrophe. The hand-drawn film, made in Flash and Photoshop, is co-directed by Pedro Rivero, with whom Vazquez made a related short film five years ago called Birdboy. (Another short film that Vazquez made, Unicorn Blood, was featured on Cartoon Brew last year.)
