Echoes of WarStreaming Video - 2011
In this film children who have survived war and violence in Afghanistan, Colombia, Sierra Leone, and New York City share their memories, nightmares, and details of their current lives. Responding to the animated tale of an elephant family coping with grief, the traumatized boys and girls talk about the events that scarred them, such as watching family members being murdered by guerillas, or waiting in vain for a father to come home from his job in the Twin Towers. Weaving in the narratives with the animated tale, which is based on a book used for counseling children, the video sensitively portrays this consequence of war and the courage and resolve of the young people affected.
