This chilling online film from British charity War Child presents the viewer with a horrific insight into the experience of a child in a war zone, as if you're playing a video game.
The film is by London agency Toad, which says it was inspired both by the testimony of children in War Child's projects across Africa and the Middle East, as well as first person shooter games. Instead of choosing to play a skilled soldier, the viewer selects a scared, unarmed child called Nima, and is taken through her terrifying experience step by step. She goes from playing in her room to hearing soldiers approach and escaping her apartment to track down her father while being shot at.
At the end, the film reminds us that less than 3% of humanitarian funding is spent on protecting children in war zones and directs the viewer to sign War Child's petition targeting the upcoming World Humanitarian Summit in May 2016.
