Matouri's short will go on screen at the Athens AnimFest, which will be held in the Greek capital from March 15-18.
'The Train' is about a person riding a flying bicycle in the sky, full of happiness. During the story, we realize that not all is as it seems. Gradually, we realize he is trapped in a slaver's cycle.
