Child & Firefly

Atif Y. Siddiqi and Glenn Gear

2009, 02:30 minutes, colour, English


This short animation illustrates an encounter between curious boy and a firefly. The boy catches the firefly in his hat and keeps it prisoner until convinced that he must set her free. This message serves to remind us to be more considerate and not destructive of other species, each other and nature.

Director: Glenn Gear
