Bear Story (Historia de un oso)

Mohaq - ages 8+

Gabriel Osorio / Short Narrative / Chile / 2014 / 10 min / Colour / DCP
In No Dialogue
MENA Premiere


Stunningly constructed, ‘Bear Story’ is the award-winning, poignant tale of a melancholy bear who tells his own story by means of a mechanical diorama. This complex film is at once a wonderfully imaginative exploration of different methods of visual storytelling, a condemnation of both state terrorism and the mistreatment of animals, and a comment on the interplay of real life and entertainment – but finally, its power lies in the moving story at its heart.
