Together Project


From the creator:

Tendril is incredibly honoured to present this animated film for Toronto-based Together Project, which pairs Canadian families with refugee newcomer families to foster friendship and support.

Written and directed by Julia Deakin and with creative consultation by our good friend Kurt Mills (of Goodby), this film perfectly encapsulates the objectives of Together Project while offering human insights into real experiences of many newcomers. Special thanks to Emilie Muszczak, who beautifully mastered the design and animation for this piece, and a big shout out Elham Nanaa, our sweet 9 year old voice. Elham arrived with her family in 2015, and between Elham and her older sister Hanan they verified that our story hits the nail on the head when it comes to how integration can work at its absolute best. They were both very proud to be part of the creation of this film.
