Grand Prix for Good winner: Unicef – Malak And The Boat

This animated short film is part of the campaign for Unicef called Unfairy Tales, which focusses on stories that no child should have to experience.

Malak And The Boat is a heartbreaking true story about seven-year-old refugee Malak's escape from Syria by boat. It's rendered in CG resembling a very solid-looking wax – giving it a unique look that draws you into the film before its emotional pull begins with the narration by Malak herself.

The film was directed by André Holzmeister, through 180LA and House of Colors. You can watch it above.
