THE LITTLE FISH AND THE CROCODILE
Director: Stefanie Plattner
Country: The Republic of Congo, Running Time: 16 min
A fable from the rainforest in the Odzala National Park in the Republic of Congo is creatively retold by the children of the Sanza Mobimba Kindergarten. The children progressed from initial character creation, to storytelling and development. All creative content, including art direction and stage design, comes from the children themselves. Adorned in costumes made from the natural elements of their home, the children are also the proud actors in their own adaptation of this traditional Congolese story.
