Synopsis

Esperança had to flee Angola with her mother after her father was taken away for launching an investigation into a corrupt political party. In this short film she recounts her experience of arriving in France, the process of finding refuge and the struggles she faced as she tried to adapt into a new culture and life. This striking hand drawn animation offers genuine insight into the experience of a young refugee and space to discuss navigating change from a unique perspective.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
