Ingresso Animali Vivi - Captive creatures dream of skies and savannahs beyond bars 


This offbeat documentary delves into the hidden depths of the minds of animals raised in captivity, using a unique hybrid of animation, documentary footage, and experimental film techniques. Directed by renowned Croatian multimedia artist Igor Grubić, the film poetically questions the consciousness of captive animals:


Do they yearn for freedom? Do they see themselves as mere products? What awaits them beyond life? This thought-provoking piece challenges viewers to rethink the moral implications of captivity and the unrecognized emotional landscapes of the animal kingdom.
