From Far Away by Shira Avni & Serene El-haj Daoud (Animation, 2000, 6 minutes)

This short animation tells the story of Saoussan, a young girl struggling to adjust to life in Canada after being uprooted from her war torn homeland. She has come to seek a quieter and safer life, although memories of war and death linger, memories that are awakened when the children at her new school prepare for a scary Halloween. From Far Away speaks to the power within us all to adapt like Saoussan and to welcome a newcomer.

Asthma Tech by Johnathan Ng (Animation, 2006, 7 minutes)

In this animated short, young Winston, who suffers from chronic asthma, isn’t able to participate in the everyday activities of his peers and classmates. He copes with the predicament through his vivid imagination, with paper and crayons. On one particularly rainy afternoon, Winston discovers that the magic of imagination has the power to transform and empower, and his skills and talents save the day.
