‘Shell’ as reviewed by Emily Thomas

Shell (Katie McKenna) is an eye opening commentary on the realities faced by child suicide bombers. McKenna sets the film in Ireland, and instead of dismissing it as a far away issue, she encourages her audience to view the story in a new light. The short ends with the powerful statement “No matter where a child is from, they deserve a right to life”, and provides the viewer with an innovative and harrowing insight into the horrors of a life many children are forced into.
