Bella Bella - Day 1-3 - Animation

Our World, in partnership with Reel 2 Real International Film Festival for Youth worked with the Grade 7 class over two days at the Bella Bella Community School to create an animated film about a Heiltsuk traditional story in the Heiltsuk language. Spoiler alert: it is about a hairy monster that captures children…
