Migrópolis, a “cool” animation project

[10/05/11]

Migróplolis is an enjoyable animated short with animal characters explaining the tales of 4 children, Tomi, Colombian, Tati from Ecuador and the Iranians Moha and Amin, who left their home countries and now live in Barcelona.

It is a short story full of sad tales which are at times are related to the emigration processes of families, light-heartedly showing the way children perceive distance, oblivion, and how their imagination allows them to enjoy their experiences.

Migrópolis is the graduate work of Karolina Villarraga (Director) and Carlos Azcuaga (animator and producer), participants in the Master's in Animation, and who also come from the other side of the Atlantic: Karolina is from Colombia, and Carlos from Mexico. They wanted to create a space for children to explain their current situation when far from their own countries but close to new worlds.

Migrópolis has been selected for Animabasauri and the Animac Mostra Internacional d'Animació de Catalunya in Lleida, the most important animation festivals in the Basque Country and Catalonia, respectively.

The filmmakers are now seeking financing to turn their project into a television series.
