Made collaboratively with children from public housing areas in the Illawarra, Protection uses a unique blend of film and animation to tell stories about childhood.
The film is inspired by the lives and experiences of the film’s adventurous and often hilarious young cast. There’s a re-telling of Goldilocks – featuring a display home and a big, bad real estate agent. There’s witches, parties and billy cart derbies, and a lovely wedding to an imaginary prince. And there are also stories of bullying and racism, death and grief and facing up to your fears and mistakes.
