Alice & the Giant Emptiness is part of the Tales of the 'One in Ten' series.
With an estimated 680,000 children living in disadvantage in Australia, this short film series was created to highlight the plight of disadvantaged children in Australia and the barriers they face in gaining a comprehensive education.
A contemporary tale about a young girl living with the burden of disadvantage, Alice doesn't have the right uniform, books or bag, and to make matters worse, her schoolmates tease her, making her feel hollow and alone. But one day, a ray of sunshine shows her she is a whole person, and a hand of friendship is extended, helping her overcome the negative self-image and the taunts of classmates to live a life full of possibility. Alice & the Giant Emptiness both enlightens and empowers.
Students of all K–12 learning levels will engage and identify with Alice. This short animation is an ideal classroom learning tool as it raises issues from personal growth and emotional development, to empathy and understanding, through to our society and values.
Alice & the Giant Emptiness has precise alignment with the learning outcome goals of the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (2008). The Declaration states that the goals are 'central to the nation's social and economic prosperity and will position young people to live fulfilling, productive and responsible lives'.
