Bear Story‘s plot synopsis: “An old, lonesome bear tells the story of his life through a mechanical diorama.”

The short was inspired by the director’s grandfather, Leopoldo Osorio, who after the Chilean coup d’état was imprisoned for two years.

I didn’t what to think about this short film when it began but towards the middle of it, right around the time the diorama began, I was hooked. This is a very impressive animated short film as well as a sad one (referring to the emotions on display in the short).
