Bear Story

In this ingenious political allegory, a lonesome bear builds an elaborate mechanical diorama in an attempt to remember the life he used to live with his wife and son, before he was ripped from his home and sent to a circus. Winner of the 2016 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film.

Presented by the Embassy of Chile
