SHORT FILMS 39: Down to the Bone

A beautifully dark tale featuring some impressive animation from this Mexican director. It tells the story of a man who awakes to the horror of being buried alive. Swallowed up by the ground, he finally lands in what appears to be an old music hall - populated by skeletons. His tension is clearly palpable through his expressive face and continuous beads of sweat. But the horror turns to beauty thanks to a mesmerising love song.
