June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness.

This short animated film produced by Illumine Media Project is the result of a collective learning process about stop motion, storytelling and how to create short stories, characters and scenarios that are uplifting to young people. In this film, when the magic climate-controlling bubble bursts, the Rollies of Quazioballis are affected by the extreme February cold and class divisions arise. One young exiled Rolly named Rolnaldo comes up with a wonderful invention to battle the cold, but this forces all the Rollies to grapple with questions around forgiveness and service.
