Storyline

Of modern fandoms around, few newer and least understood in mainstream western culture than furry fandom: the fandom of anthropomorphic fantasy characters or funny animals. This film interviews various devotees to this interest, such as their personal lives and their personal opinions on their hobby, whether it be simply an appreciation of the artistic products or wearing elaborate furry costumes complete with alternate personas. Furthermore, the internal conflict of the fandom is explored between those who struggle to maintain a carefully positive public image of the community for outsiders and those esoteric souls who insist on enjoying their hobby their way, not matter how extreme. Against the looming fear of the mainstream media determined to exploit the most sensational examples they can find, this conflict is bound to make the fur fly. Written by Kenneth Chisholm

Honest, and Intriguing

"Fursonas" is a film delving into the Furry Fandom, particularly into the lives of a few furries.

It's a great documentary that gives a unique insight to a group of people with a fascinating and creative interest in their more animal sides. Some express it by hosting fun radio shows, or wearing animal costumes in to public venues, or creating beautiful pieces of artwork depicting their own furry personas, or fursonas.

It takes a slow pace, but it keeps your interest by telling various stories of a few individuals in the furry fandom. Some stories are funny, and some are sad. Either or, this film is good in helping the viewer understand and relate to the individuals shown.

All in all, it's a fantastic film, for people both inside and outside the furry fandom. It seems to really show the true colours of the furry fandom, and those colours are wonderful, creative, unique, and flat-out fun.
