  3. Alike

    Inspired by the filmmakers’ own experiences as fathers, ‘Alike’ is heart-warming, animated short film directed by Daniel Martínez Lara and Rafa Cano Méndez. It depicts the relationship between a father (Copi) and son (Paste) in a colourless world of everyday drudgery. Each day as the pair head to school and work the vibrant whimsy of life recedes into insipid uniformity. But in this touching, 3D computer-animated tale, we see how they overcome the mundane to bring colour and creativity back into their lives.
