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.)

The new feature was produced by Zircozine and Basque Films, and co-produced by Abrakam Studio and La Competencia. No American distribution has been set yet, but more details about the film can be found at PsiconautasMovie.com.
