Asthma Tech

| 7 min

Œuvre d’animation semi-autobiographique de Jonathan Ng sur les épreuves d’un jeune garçon asthmatique. Avec beaucoup de fantaisie, Asthma Tech raconte l’histoire de Winston qui, grâce à son talent d’artiste et une forte imagination, surmonte son handicap qui l’empêche de s’adonner avec ses amis aux jeux et aux activités de son âge.

Ce film fait partie de la série Les petits conteurs 2 qui, à l’instar des Petits conteurs, s’adresse aux enfants de cinq à neuf ans et porte à l'écran les récits de diverses communautés culturelles.

In this animated short film, Winston is frustrated by his asthma, especially when he must miss playing outside at recess. His constant coughing and use of his inhaler cause him to be judged harshly by the other children. Why do the other children exclude Winston from games? Why does Winston feel uncomfortable and different from his classmates? How does Winston cope with his frustration? What changes so that the other children accept Winston?
