Giraffe in the rain, A

2007 – 12 minutes.

All the fresh water in Djambali goes to filling Mr. Lion’s swimming pool. Fed up with this situation, a giraffe protests and is promptly banned to Mirzapolis, a northern city inhabited by dogs. In Mirzapolis, the giraffe ekes out a marginal existence, has to request asylum and eat dog food. No one will employ him. He eventually gets a job with a landscaping company but finds his asylum request is rejected. In this delicate metaphor, dramatic circumstances are handled with frank simplicity.   (source: Cinemabiente Film Festival)
