The word Bardo in Tibetan Buddhist tradition means an intermediate, transitory or liminal state between death and reincarnation. A transitional situation, in time and space, is also experienced by the young protagonist of Bardo, a 2D animation directed by Aisling Conroy, in which a girl finds herself questioning her own life choices when she meets her grandmother and starts to mix memories with reality, the present with the past.
Aisling Conroy is multidisciplinary artist, and is a writer and director with And
Maps And Plans. The short animated film BARDO is her directorial debut.
