A New Perspective

a short movie by Emanuela Ponzano, 18, 2020

Synopsis

We follow a young boy playing in a forest with some friends. Bit by bit, through his eyes, we see a distressed child of a different ethnic race, then a long line of people amassed together, police guards with dogs and a high wall covered with barbed wire. Where are we? and when ?
