The Sandbox

Top of page

Two children create an entire world in their sandbox. Their imagination soars, until rampant growth and pollution overcome their playful antics. Fortunately, their lost teddy bear comes to the rescue. A delightful environmental tale for young children. A richly colourful animated film using cutouts, crayons and markers.

1995, 13 min 03 s
