Best Animation – Onión

Choosing the Festival’s Best Animation wasn’t easy but the casting vote gave it to Onión.

Hysterically sharp satire, Onión combines a hyper real send up of present day vanity and New Age obsessions, with truly fantastic animation of the most compellingly surreal kind. In 22 short minutes, award winning Argentinian director, Zaramella, shows why his cinema magic has amazed film lovers around the globe. Funny, perceptive and totally out of this World.

With  delightful characters, a profound message and  magical Caribbean scenery, Cacu proved itself worthy of The Best Documentary.
