Trailer for the animated short DAvid & The Big Heavy.
David & the Big Heavy follows the true story of a young immigrant boy struggling to cope with a myriad of issues at home and school as his family adjusts to life in a new country. Children from disadvantaged families face a unique set of difficulties and these can weigh heavily on them and hold them back at school if the right support isn’t available. The film attempts to capture this with David’s backpack that collects his memories and experiences, eventually becoming so heavy he is brought to his knees.
