Last night while browsing through YouTubeI came across Alma, a 2009 Spanish Short Animation. This beautifully rendered film by ex-Pixar animator, Rodrigo Blaas, is a cautionary Tale about inquisitive children and eerie-looking dolls. 

If you haven’t yet seen this Charming Short, I strongly recommend you do... 

The 5 flawless minutes worth of film has no spoken dialogue, just lighthearted music playing throughout the background — the atmosphere is perfect. I Loved the character designs and the wonderfully dark twist. The word "alma" in Spanish means "soul".

It was received notable recognition at the Fantastic Fest Awards as well as the below Awards:

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, it's truly a Little Gem!
