ACEH'S LITTLE HEROES
Period: March 2007 - September 2007
OTMI was appointed by UNICEF to recreate a half hour documentary about the production of a series of video diaries made by children affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Aceh. The original UNICEF video diaries project was conducted by the highly regarded Indonesian Production House Miles Productions and resulted in a documentary that was broadcast at the Jakarta film festival. UNICEF then wanted to remake the documentary so it can be distributed to international networks and donors across the word.
OTMI also produced 9 (nine) 5-minute packages incorporating the children’s videos which explain what the children wanted to achieve through their films. These short films have been used for advocacy and training throughout Indonesia.
Aceh’s Little Heroes was shown at the Balinale International Film Festival in 2008.
