Animated short film
Alexandre SIQUEIRA [Portugal]
The work depicts a process of growth for a child who was born with different sex from the one he desires. Oscar was born in his parents’ garden. Nobody knows his biological sex, but he claims the masculine gender. Oscar, who admires his paratrooper father, flies on an aircraft one day and arrives in a town where children wearing military uniforms are playing. The theme of identity exploration is expressed through an allegorical narrative.
