Whilst leading an expedition to Africa, anthropologist Leonard Orlov discovers a feral child living a brutal and primitive existence. Horrified, he brings the creature back to Victorian London, intent on civilizing the child.


About the director: Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Ana Caro has always had a burning passion for art and animation, and this led to her studying the visual arts and then completing a BA in  Visual Arts with emphasis in Animation at Javeriana University. Her graduation film on that BA course, ”My Name is Marian”, went on to win many plaudits and its awards included the Public Award in the Experimental Animation Festival in Bogotá and the Santa Lucia award for best animation in the In Vitro Visual Festival; it was also officially selected for the Tricky Woman festival, ReAnimacja and LAFF. Influenced by Expressionism and drawn towards more experimental forms of animation, Ana nevertheless loves to work with strong narratives and evoke powerful emotions through form and movement. But one thing is for sure – she is always trying to push herself to the limits, never satisfied with convention or the status quo.   Filmography.
