Synopsis

Known around the neighbourhood as Karate Kid due to their favourite outfit, a young teenager finds themselves face to face with their personal demons, who have taken the form of a large and colourful monster made of torn-up football shirts.. Coming from a family with a long history of depression and anxiety, Karate Kid must find a way to overcome their fears and become a champion in their own mind. This short and personal film, shot on gorgeous 35mm film, tackles mental health in the United Kingdom in both a surreal and relatable fashion, focusing in on the small things that give us strength.

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. "
