Documentary, Short Films




This short documentary is narrated by and seen through the eyes of a seven-year-old girl named Nuraiyah who speaks of the marvels found in life. As she roams through the urban landscape of her city surroundings, she thinks about how life can be so many different things – sad, hard, fun, happy – all at once, and how it is made up of family, friends, nature and all the other things that surround her. This is an optimistic film featuring beautiful cinematography that reminds us what it is to be a child full of hope.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
