The History of Magic: Ensueñ


USA, Black Comedy/Animation, 2016
6 min, Black & White

When the school bell rings, Ester Bolaños escapes her small border-town high school. When she rides her beloved bike all the way home, Ester escapes reality. To feel alive, she imagines every fantastical way she could die. She’ll take her chances against sharks, tanks, or flame-throwing Nazis any day if it means avoiding the boring fates of her fellow students and family.
