In 2014, Don’t Panic created a film which showed a young British girl’s life falling apart around her after an imagined civil war. Since then, the video has been viewed more than 50 million times on YouTube and won Save the Childen a gold cyber lions at Cannes.
Still the Most Shocking Second a Day, is the follow up film. Picking up where the previous film left off, the same young girl is fleeing a UK civil war in search of safety. This film is inspired by the stories of real child refugees fleeing war and persecution. It’s a powerful reminder that the refugee crisis is happening here and it’s happening now. The film was created by Richard Beer and directed by Tom Green.
Worldwide, 60 million people have been forced to flee their homes by war, conflict and persecution. It’s the largest refugee crisis since World War II. Among them is a generation of children who have lost everything they know: their homes, their education – sometimes even their families. This crisis is the direct consequence of five years of grinding war in Syria, and a roll-call of violence and persecution that has unravelled millions of lives around the world, from South Sudan to Colombia. It’s a situation that has forced families into terrifying situations and impossible choices. And children have suffered most. To see how we can help click here.
