Composition
Nelson the Piglet

Nelson the Piglet

Age section 9-12 year.

The family bought Nelson seven years ago believing he was a miniature pig—now he’s a 500 kilo colossus, and an annoyance to neighbors and the housing association. An upbeat short documentary about true love for a four-legged friend.

Girl Away from Home

Girl Away from Home

Age section 9-12 year. A portrait of a resilient 13-year-old Ukrainian gymnast around the start of the war. She talks about her passion for the sport, her much-loved family and friends, and how tough it is to flee your homeland.
Eternal Father

Eternal Father

Age section 9-12 year. A warm and sincere portrait of a British family, in which the father, Nasar, has decided to be cryonically frozen when he dies. It’s a decision that has a major impact on his wife and young children.
