FROM DOODLES TO PIXELS: A JOURNEY THROUGH SPANISH ANIMATION (DEL TRAZO AL PIXEL: UN RECORRIDO POR LA NIMACIÓN ESPAÑOLA)
"From Doodles To Pixels" is an extraordinary compilation of the best of Spanish animated film. It tours a century of talent through around fifty short films, a selection of animated commercials, and the first Spanish animated feature film for adults, HISTORIAS DE AMOR Y MASACRE, carefully restored for this edition. These three DVDs not only reflect the diversity of techniques that make animation an art that knows no boundaries, but also offer a journey through the aesthetic evolution of a country that has lived through times of scarcity and isolation before becoming one of the richest creative talent pools in the international arena. This boxed set includes a 160 page booklet with information on each film.

Stories of Love and Carnage (Historias de amor y masacre)
• Historias de amor y masacre premiered at the heigh of the transition to democracy and became a vitriolaic vision of a Spain yet to be defined, in which the most subversive cartoonists produced a snapshot that today would still be accurate, with large doses of sarcasm, sex, blood, irony, violence, nerve and guts. The authors appear in the credits "in strict order from the bad to the good ones": Óscar, Perich, Gila, Vallés, Fer, JA, Chumy, and Ivà. Each author produced a short film, except Perich, who sketched shorter gags that serve to link together the different sequences.
