Tales of the ‘One In Ten’ - Alice & the Giant Emptiness - The Smith Family

‘Alice & The Giant Emptiness’ is the first short film from a new animated series and it has just been launched.
The entire serie is called Tales of the ‘One In Ten’. It is based on the real stories of Australian children from disadvantaged backgrounds who struggle daily with the effects of financial hardship.

It is about one in ten Australian children, which is 638,000 in absolute numbers, who are living in disadvantaged families today.
The Tales aims to raise awareness of disadvantage and its effects. They are drawn from the case studies provided by children’s education charity ‘The Smith Family’.

After ‘Alice & the Giant Emptiness’ it will continue with further stories about other children and their experiences of disadvantage and how they overcome them.

Alice & the Giant Emptiness is the story of a girl who finds herself socially outcast at school as a result of being labelled as ‘the poor kid’.
See it here below and on the dedicated campaign website.
