Abdulla Al-Janahi / Short Narrative / Qatar / 9 min / Original Language: English / Interests: 3D Animation


Aqua, the sea turtle, was born with the disability of having one fin smaller than the other. But he doesn’t let it get in the way of his life’s journey from nest to sea—one fraught with dangerous predators and tragic pollution. This endearingly humorous animation hides a more profound message of perseverance and the importance of being environmentally conscious.
