As an experimental in-house short, Blue Zoo created an animated film influenced by the Syrian refugee crisis. It tells the story of a mother’s journey to save her child when the light which makes up their world is taken away. Created by projecting characters onto simple white blocks, the film invites the viewer to interpret the surroundings. Light, the central theme of the piece, is weakened, refracted, and reflected by representing the twisting challenges faced by many.
