Another submission from the Royal College of Art in the UK, this student film has a psychedelic aspect to its style of animation. Two characters, one big and one small, interact with a trumpet. Although at first all is well with the bigger character playing his trumpet, before long he has been playing it all night, and no one has been able to sleep. However, the narrative displays core values of tolerance, inclusion, and the celebration of diversity, as the characters learn to acknowledge the differences between them and seek compromise in their games.
This short film is an endearing and idiosyncratic tale which presents a gentle way to discuss peaceful conflict resolution with younger children. Children aged 4-7 years old will be able to draw upon their own experiences of conflict and compromise to develop a moral message out of this short film.
