dir. Pedro Rivero & Alberto Vazquez / Spain / 2015 / 76 minutes

The protagonists become travelers in their minds ("Psychonauts") and relive isolated past emotions to avoid facing reality. Full of contrasts, combining a friendly, minimalist aesthetic with an adult story, Psychonauts critiques modern society.
