AFTER/DARK

Are you brave enough to stick around After/Dark? From the racy to the unsettling, the hair-raising to the eyebrow-raising, these short films will take you into the darker side of animation. Featuring a hide-and-seek game gone unnervingly wrong, ravenous spiders invading a dollhouse, a dystopian hunt, a gruesome re-telling of human history, and some raunchy salmon, these films are stone cold proof that sometimes, animation is definitely NOT for kids. Don’t say we didn't warn you…

Ydych chi'n ddigon dewr i aros o gwmpas Ar ôl/iddi Nosi? O'r amheus i'r ansefydlog, y codi gwallt eich pen i'r codi aeliau, bydd y ffilmiau byr hyn yn mynd â chi i ochr dywyllach animeiddio. Yn cynnwys gêm guddio wedi mynd o chwith, pryfed cop rheibus yn ymledu i dŷ dol, helfa dystopaidd, ailadrodd erchyll  hanes y ddynoliaeth, ac eog gwyllt chwantus, mae'r ffilmiau hyn yn dystiolaeth iasol NAD yw animeiddiad weithiau ar gyfer plant. Peidiwch â dweud na wnaethom eich rhybuddio…
