Tagline

A man finds that he is no more humane than his animal friend.

Synopsis

Nling is an impenetrable walled slum city whose inhabitants are cut off from the world outside. In this redemption story, animated entirely with paper print outs, a Nlingian man and his best friend Donkey tunnel beneath the wall to find food and alcohol. In their struggle to survive, the lines between man and beast and life and death begin to blur, and each must come face to face with their true nature.

I loved this film. It was very original, had great dialogue and raised some difficult questions about human nature and the ways we structure our societies.
