A lonely gannet falls in love with a concrete statue in this wonderful animated short by Natasza Cetner. “Nigel” is Cetner’s graduation film from the Royal College of Art in London and is based on a true story of a seabird on Mana Island. Cetner states: “His tragic tale of idealisation and delusion shows us a reflection of our own misconceptions in love.”
