To mark World Refugee day we’d like to highlight some of the films A+C has made with young unaccompanied asylum seekers over the past 10 years. As well as being an animation production company based just outside of London, A+C has made over 400 animated films with young people including refugees in Kent.

Working alongside the Kent Refugee Action Network (KRAN) , the studio has used animation to tell the stories of the young people supported by the charity. We’ve selected four of our favourite films to celebrate these amazing young people and highlight the plight of refugees around the world. More information can be found out about KRAN here

Small rabbits

An allegory of three rabbits who escape danger in their homeland. This film mirrors events experienced by young filmmakers brought into the UK by illegal sex traffickers.

Fish out of water

Three refugee girls supported by KRAN have always wanted to swim, but were never taught. The girls talk about their first swimming lessons and animate their thoughts using a paint on glass animation.

Kamran’s story

The story of a young Afghan’s journey as a refugee from his homeland to the U.K

Zebra

The story of a young unaccompanied asylum seeker, seeking refuge after religious persecution.
