It’s a beautiful day, and the Pipsqueak Prince notices that there’s a dirty mark on the sun. This short animation by Russian-French filmmaker Zoïa Trofimova follows the Prince as he endeavours against all odds to clean the sun As the sun sets and comes nearer to the Earth, he finds he is able to reach and clean it. Contented, he goes to bed as night falls. It is here that the twist is revealed: the waste pipe from his house emerges on the other side of the planet, and is the cause of the sun’s mess. As the sun moves around the planet, waste falls onto the sun, only to start the cleaning process all over again. The theme of sustainable development/climate change is present as the impact of the actions on one side of the planet are shown to have consequences on the other.
