In A Future Without Books, A Loner Makes An Incredible Discovery

Video: Writer-director Pablo Calvillo's The Inksect is set in a dark future where books are burned as one of the planet's few remaining energy sources. But hope is not totally lost — as one lonely survivor discovers, there are still some valuable fragments of the past lingering in this bleak dystopia.

It's a cool story, but the unusual animation style here is what really makes The Inksect stand out. It looks like a charcoal drawing come to life, with some gorgeous and very surreal embellishments.
