International Day of the Girl 2020 by Parallel Teeth
Strange Beast director Robert Wallace (aka Parallel Teeth) helps US charity VOW To End Child Marriage boost awareness and drive donations for International Day of the Girl 2020 with an upbeat but uncompromising message.
Strange Beast: “In this third year of films Strange Beast producing films for VOW, there is an anticipated spike in child marriage due to the COVID 19 crisis.
“With more children out of school and an increased financial burden on families, child marriages will rise. This film directed by Parallel Teeth, with agency Hive, creates a fresh take on the Wedding Vow to show support for girls and to protect girls’ rights.
“Featuring footage of Vow activists, the film is vibrant with hand-drawn text that flows and transitions with illustrated embellishments. The expressive and organic feeling emphasizes individuality, both of the activists and girls the film is created to protect.”
