ONLY A CHILD

ONLY A CHILD

PREMIO: Miglior Animazione 2021

Un poema visivo creato da oltre venti animatori sotto la direzione artistica di Simone Giampaolo che dà forma e colore alle parole originali pronunciate dall’allora dodicenne Severn Suzuki al Vertice della Terra delle Nazioni Unite del 1992 a Rio de Janeiro: il disperato appello di una bambina per il futuro del nostro pianeta. Con questo film d’animazione collettivo dalle immagini eloquenti e allegorie fulminanti, i giovani cineasti lanciano un potente richiamo al mondo.

Only a Child can be described as a visual poem which gives shape and colour to the words spoken by 12 year-old Severn Suzuki at the United Nations' Rio Summit in 1992, using meaningful images and powerful animated allegories.

Severn’s speech is a child's desperate call to action aimed to those adults who can make a difference to the future of our planet. That is, all of us. Starting from the original speech from 1992, I edited a version which doesn’t refer to that particular UN Summit nor any specific group of people, in order to make this message universal and true for every viewer. As the speech unfolds we see animated kids from around the world – of different gender, age, features and characteristics - speaking Severn's words. The aim was to show that these sentences could be pronounced by any child of yesterday, today and, in particular, tomorrow.
