The Little Red Paper Ship

Aleksandra Zaręba
Czerwony papierowy stateczek
Germany, Poland 2013 / 13’

A red ship dreams that one day it will discover a new world. Although it is only a small paper bark, its heart fills with enough courage to believe anything is possible and sets off to fulfil its life-long fantasy. The expedition proves to be a transformative great adventure in a poetic story about the courage of setting out on the open water.
