THE ANIMATED ACTIVIST Documentary

1/1

Music and sound design by Andrew Huggett. With few resources and a fierce will, Firdaus Kharas has created six series of behavior-change animated shorts to prevent AIDS, malaria, domestic violence and to promote children's rights. He's adapted them into 90 languages for distribution in 150 countries. Shot over four years in seven countries, The Animated Activist chronicles 'No excuses', this Peabody Award-winner's boldest campaign: to prevent domestic violence against women and children by humorously attacking such justifications as culture and religion. The result is an intimate portrait of how and why real human rights start with individuals.
