Social Awareness


My dear friend Henrik who runs Spinning Wheel Films, a small independent production company, is currently in production of his 2nd short film. The film, titled ”The Silence”, is a fiction drama that follows Bella during her childhood, as she tries to escape from having to witness the bullying and aggression that her older sister is submitted to, every single day, year out and year in. 20-30% of all children worldwide, suffer repeated abuse at home and half of them through bullying or other psychological violence. Films, as a beautiful and strongly emotional media, can help change things, and Henrik wants his film to be part of such a change. The aim is to distribute the film to festivals, tv-channels, and online streaming, but also to give the film for free usage to charity organisations, educational institutions etc.

He has, through the cast and the crew’s good will, already come a bit on his way, but he still needs a bit of help. With contribution he can guarantee the film’s completion. And he will be able to use some of the funding to market and spread the film. Support this project if you have the possibility. 🎥 #SpinningWheelFilms #TheSilence

Three design students created the Polluted Water Popsicles project, which aims to raise awareness about rising water pollution due to rapid economic growth and urbanization. Water was taken from 100 different water sources in Taiwan and turned into frozen toxic popsicles before Hung I-chen, Guo Yi-hui, and Cheng Yu-ti from the National Taiwan University of Arts recreated them using transparent polyester resin. They even made wrappers for them that represented the different regions from which the polluted water samples were taken. While the trash in the water was varied, about 90 percent of it was plastic, and the popsicles contain everything from bottle caps and plastic bags to bottles and chopstick wrappers.
