This powerful short film is about the Syrian civil war — a reality of contemporary life, and a component of the present migrant crisis. A small boy plays in a box in his room with his pet cat as fireworks go off outside. However, the fireworks change into an explosion instead. When the boy wakes he is inside his box but in a refugee camp, surrounded by danger and poverty. As the story progresses he moves from one danger into another, before finally seeking rescue. This at times heart-breaking short film by London-based Turkish animator Merve Cirisoglu Cotur is a powerful look at the Syrian war that humanizes the migrant crisis. The different metaphors that the box stands for throughout the film provide a way to consider the application of symbolism in the expression of cultural identity.
