Short has to cross the ocean. He is a bit scared...
A charming tale with a very real twist to raise awareness for the refugee crisis in the Mediterranean Sea.
As creatives, we feel the urge to use our skills for good, to give people in need a voice that can't be ignored. The stories we tell have the power to pierce through our protective shields so viewers can't help but look closely. And those who can't turn their eyes away are those who take action.
Thousands of people die in the Mediterranean Sea each and every year, but our attention has long moved on. Where governments fail to address these problems, NGOs step into the breach and save people from drowning. NGOs like Jugend Rettet, a group of young people, who run their own ship, the Iuventa, or Humany Tee, the t-shirt label, that gives 80% of its profits to Jugend Rettet. These people save lives and they need our help.
