Short Film: Bear Story

Every day, a melancholy old bear takes a mechanical diorama that he has created out to his street corner. For a coin, passersby can look into the peephole of his invention, which tells the story of a circus bear who longs to escape and return to the family from which he was taken.

PunkRobot Studio, the production company behind Bear Story, has a microsite dedicated to the film: bearstory.cl. Director Gabriel, who developed the concept behind the film, writes about the connection between this family and his own experience of being separated from his grandfather during Pinochet’s dictatorship in Chile.
