Stuttgart Announces Winners
Comment by the Childrens Jury: We chose this film because of its sensitive approach. A good mix of different animated techniques such as computer animation and classical drawings was used to transport the very important theme in an interesting way. We also felt that the film, which reflects what is happening in todays world, gives us something to think about.
