IQBAL, THE CHILD THAT WAS NOT FEAR

BY MICHEL FUZELLIER AND BABAK PAYAMI

IQBAL, THE CHILD THAT WAS NOT FEAR


Iqbal divides his time between his friends and his adorable little goat. His life is turned upside down when his brother gets sick. To help his family, he decides, with a big heart, to sell his goat. But everything will not go as planned.

In tribute to Iqbal Masih, a young Pakistani symbol of the fight against child labor (murdered at age 12, in 1995), the authors designed this fable in animation. The result is quite moving to sensitize young audiences to modern forms of slavery.
