Within a traditional fairy-tale structure, this animated short addresses eternal issues like sacrifice, equality and bravery, and considers how today’s women deserve equal treatment and privileges. Night after night, Sheherezade fought for her life by crafting stories for the King. ‘1001 Days’ imagines a story behind the famous fable, and a strong woman who fights for her independence, dignity and freedom.
