Jesús Pérez, Gerd Gockell

Switzerland, Germany, 2020 / 5 min / without words / animation

Part of the short film collection Coucouleurs

In this animated lesson about tolerance, the proverbial black sheep is bullied out of its flock.

A herd of white sheep lives a peaceful life until the arrival of the proverbial “black sheep”. Because it looks different from them, the white sheep bully it out of the flock. But they may have judged too quickly and formed a wrong opinion about the newcomer as only this outsider can save them from great disaster.

An animated children's film about tolerance towards strangers.
