Hand-drawn charcoal drawings movingly depict the loneliness and bewilderment of a child seeking safety in a war zone, in this timely very short animation that uses found sound to explore the powerlessness of the refugee experience.

Produced as part of the 11th edition of the NFB’s Hothouse apprenticeship.

    Absolutely stunning. Made with such sensibility, visually stricking with a perfect atmospheric soundtrack. Profound.
