UNICEF: In their Shoes

This film was commissioned by the Latin America and Carribbean office of UNICEF to highlight the refugee crisis in South America. The brief was to create a piece which invoked empathy in audiences. We pitched the idea to tell the story of the journey of a pair of shoes. We liked how much you can tell about a person's circumstances by focussing on the type of shoes they wear and the condition they're in. We hoped to link a potentially foreign concept of the South American refugee crisis with something that everyone can relate to - a pair of shoes.
