We are always so afraid of the other side, even though we are all the same. When a war rips their world apart, a little girl and little boy from two sides come together to heal it with their magical crayon. But we all know that’s just fantasy. Real wars are not so easy to stop; the damage is not so easy to fix.

The animated movie is a production from Iran’s Documentary and Experimental Film Center.

Iranian animators are frequent visitors to the Bratislava festival.

In 2018, “Icky” by Iranian director Parastu Kardgar won the UNICEF Award. The film uses original means to tackle the issue of difference and integration and lifts up the unique nature of an individual, echoing UNICEF‘s work ethos.
