Ali's Story. A Journey from Afghanistan

Part of the series "Seeking Refuge"

von: Andy Glynne

At the age of ten Ali escapes with his grandmother from war-ravaged Afghanistan. His parents, however, are not allowed to leave the country. Ali feels all too often lonesome in his new environment, for he has not heard from his parents since his departure. To find his way in the new environment turns out to be a big challenge, too.


What makes people want to flee from home? How do refugee children experience the loss of friends or family and the arrival in the unfamiliar new home country? Refugee children from around the world share their story in “Seeking Refuge”, a series of five short animated films: Ali from Afghanistan, Juliane from Zimbabwe, Navid from Iran, Rachel from Eurasia and Hamid from Eritrea. They speak about their flight from home, their concerns and fears, their hopes and dreams.
