Bedtime Stories for the Brave

Runtime: 6:10
Country: Germany
Language: German
Category: 2019 | Short Film (2019)

A mother reads her daughter fairy tales about blue skies, the summer sun, and magical creatures called birds which travel tens of thousands of kilometers just to stay warm all year round… Everything we take for granted today has gone extinct; or now only lives in fantasy books, and people’s imagination. Our world is beautiful, and has enough ‘magic’ for those who look for it. Maybe if we see it through the eyes of an innocent child who will never see nature in her life time, it will be easier to understand what is at stake now if climate change, global warming and pollution continues unattended.
