Unique and profound treatise on flights, the short movie Estranho Animal merges animation techniques and photographs to think about the bestiality of dictatorship and, on the opposite side, about the beautiful animal that is freedom. Arthur B. Senra’s film invites us to a metaphysical flight to the un-limits of dreaming. We enter a black and white spectacle between realism and the surreal, between ashes and air, between the end and the beginning, in order to meditate on the wings that make us walk.
