Melty Hearts

Corazones Derretidos (No Dialogue)

Chile | 4 min | Drama | 2018 | Short Film (Animation) | No Dialogue

The film ‘Melty Hearts' portrays the struggle of a penguin to save its family from the damage that global warming has caused to their habitats. The film can be taken as social criticism and thus reflects the impact of human greed. It shows how the selfishness of human beings in their search for development and progress makes it more difficult to curb the effects of global warming which little by little destroys the habitat of many species.

বাংলা

বৈশ্বিক উষ্ণায়নের আঘাত হতে এক পেঙ্গুইনের তার পরিবারকে রক্ষা করার যে সংগ্রাম, তা এই স্বল্পদৈর্ঘ্য চলচ্চিত্রে ফুটিয়ে তোলা হয়েছে। মানুষের দায়িত্বহীনতা, ধ্বংসাত্মক ব্যবহার, উন্নতির পেছনে ছুটে চলা এই পৃথিবীকে অন্য প্রজাতির জন্য করে তুলেছে বসবাসের অযোগ্য। বিলুপ্ত হয়ে যাচ্ছে নানা প্রাণী। মানুষকে তাদের অসচেতন আচরণ সম্পর্কে সচেতন করাই এই চলচ্চিত্রের প্রধান উদ্দেশ্য।

Original Language

"Un pingüino intenta salvar a su familia del daño que el Calentamiento global le ha ocasionado a su hábitat". Visión de los Directores: Quisimos realizar ‘’Melty Hearts’’ como una crítica social y de esta manera reflejar como el egoísmo del ser humano en su búsqueda del desarrollo y el progreso ayudan a que sea más difícil frenar los efectos del calentamiento global, el cual, poco a poco va destruyendo el hábitat de muchas especies.
