Cartoon Production Information:
My grandfather, Leopoldo Osorio, was detained on 1973, during Pinochetís dictatorship in Chile. He was incarcerated for two years, after which he fled to England, forced to live in exile and be apart from his family.
During my childhood I felt the invisible presence of an absent grandfather, who was not dead, but was not present in my life. My short film Bear Story is not about the life of my grandfather, but it is inspired by his absence and the mark it left on me.
Bear Story leaves some questions unanswered. What happened to the bearís family? Where are they? These are the same questions that thousands of families ask themselves, who up to this day still donít know where their loved ones ended up. I hope these questions never need to be asked again.
This short film is the result of over two years of hard work. Some of the best Chilean animators and artists came together to make it happen. I sincerely hope that Bear Story reminds the audience of their loved ones and their significance in their lives.
