Colourfully bold: Cecilia is a young Cuban and vibrant animator raised in London. The recent graduate of The Royal College of Art celebrates chaotic, messy storytelling with her absurdist hand-drawn shorts that blossom with flagrant intent to reflect her heritage. She won the 2018 TAIS Jury Award for Best Short with her dark comedy “The Missing Pig” a reflection of her love of nonsensical stories with a dramatic childish flare.
