Dan Castro Ponders Self-compassion in “Fatboy” Short
UK director/animator Dan Castro, whose standout student films “Herman Brown is Feeling Down” and “Big Finds A Trumpet” planted him firmly on the Stash radar, is back with a monologue-driven and deeply personal work.
Dan Castro: “After a lifetime of feeling fat, a young man realizes maybe his issues with his body aren’t actually about his body at all.
“This short, biographical mini-documentary is a tiny story about the big problem of not opening up, the pressure we put ourselves under, and learning to be kind to ourselves.”
