Video still - Malak and the Boat: A Journey from Syria

NEW YORK, 29 March 2016 -- UNICEF today launched a series of animated films to help frame positive perceptions towards the tens of millions of children and young people on the move globally.

Called Unfairy Tales, the three animations – true stories of the flight of children from conflict – explain the horror behind why they fled. They have been animated in the style of a fairy tale and will be supported by an interactive e-book experience also called Unfairy Tales.

The Unfairy Tales are part of an initiative, #actofhumanity, emphasising that children are children, no matter where they come from, and that every child has rights and deserves a fair chance.

“No matter where they are in the world, when refugee and migrant children reach their destination, it is the beginning of another journey, not the end of the road,” said Paloma Escudero, UNICEF’s head of communication.

“Every day, everywhere, people are helping them out with small acts of humanity. These acts rarely make news but they are making all the difference in the world to individual refugee and migrant children. UNICEF wants to showcase these #actofhumanity to inspire others and show the way forward,” Escudero said.

One story – “Ivine and the Pillow” – animates the true story of 14-year-old Ivine and her pillow, Pillow. After a perilous escape from Syria, Ivine settles at a refugee camp in Germany only to face new challenges. “Malak and the Boat”, tells the tale of a young girl’s voyage in a leaky boat. The third animation depicts the story of Mustafa, who after fleeing his home, wonders who is left to be his friend.

”The stories of the three children are not unusual. At least 65 million children and young people globally are on the move – escaping conflict, poverty and extreme weather - looking for a more stable life and a place to call home,” Escudero said.

全球性的 #actofhumanity行動,由兒童的真實故事啟發

紐約/香港,2016年3月29日—聯合國兒童基金會(UNICEF)推出一系列短片,向社會大眾展示現時災難中的兒童及青少年每天面對的困境。

名為《不是童話》(Unfairy Tales)系列一共有3條短片,分別展示3名災難中的兒童流離失所的故事,讓社會大眾了解長途跋涉背後的恐懼。短片得到同樣名為Unfairy Tales的互動電子書技術協助,以童話故事形式製作。

《不是童話》是 #actofhumanity 行動一部分,旨在帶出「無論來自何處,所有兒童都擁有平等權利及待遇」的訊息。

UNICEF傳訊主管埃斯庫德羅(Paloma Escudero)表示:「無論他們身在何方,當移民及難民兒童到達他們的目標,他們不是純粹到達終點,而是展開新的生活。無論人們在甚麼時候、身處哪裏,只要聚集每人一點的人道行動,便能帶給他們幫助。這一點點的行動看起來微不足道,但他們的每一分心意都正在改變移民及難民兒童的生命。UNICEF希望藉 #actofhumanity 鼓勵更多人行動,廣傳這份心意。」

其中一個故事〈艾雲妮與枕頭歷險記〉講述14歲的女孩艾雲妮與她的枕頭的故事。從敘利亞逃亡後,艾雲妮在德國一個難民營安置並面對新的挑戰;〈飄泊的馬拉克〉則帶出一名年幼的女孩依靠小船渡過汪洋的故事。第三套短片則是男孩馬斯他法的故事,他逃離家園,並為剩下多少個朋友而感到迷罔。。

埃斯庫德羅說:「這3名兒童的故事並不罕見。在敘利亞,至少6,500萬兒童及年輕人生活在災難中之中——面對嚴寒、貧困及在戰亂中尋得一身容身之所。」

UNICEF對廣告代理180LA、在動畫製作室Consulado、House of Colors、Bubba’s Chop Shop及Gilles+Cecilie Studio及Media Monks協助下,構思並完成整個系列,表示敬意。Media Monks亦有份協助製作互動電子書。

180LA行政創意總裁Rafael Rizuto及Eduardo Marques說:「《不是童話》中許多畫面都令人心碎,如實反映一名小孩在當刻的反應,並揭示有些故事,從來不應由孩子去面對和經歷。我們需要讓更多人看這些短片故事,讓大家反思。」

UNICEF將透過於社交平台吸引更多人觀看這些動畫,並有機會製作更多段動畫,UNICEF鼓勵各方以 #actofhumanity 標籤廣傳這些故事,啟發身邊的人,並向移民及難民兒童和年輕人展示我們仁慈的善舉#actofhumanity。
