Strange Beast director Robert Wallace (also known as Parallel Teeth) is helping US charity VOW To End Child Marriage raise awareness and raise funds for International Girls' Day 2020 with an optimistic but uncompromising message.
Strange Beast: “In this third year of films in which Strange Beast produces films for VOW, an increase in child marriage is to be expected due to the COVID 19 crisis.
“As more children leave school and families become more financially stressed, child marriages will increase. This Parallel Teeth film with Hive agency revisits the wedding vows to show support for girls and to protect girls' rights.
“The film contains footage of vow activists and is alive with hand-drawn text that flows and fades with illustrated decorations. The expressive and organic feel emphasizes the individuality of both the activists and the girls the film is supposed to protect. "
