Thérèse McKenna is a freelance journalist and a MA student in Motion Graphics at Letterkenny Institute of Technology in Donegal.
“Children of asylum seekers in direct provision are unseen and unheard – this piece considers how a child might see things, or what life feels like for a little person stuck in that system. I made it as part of my MA in Motion Graphics at Letterkenny Institute of Technology – because I wanted more people to know about this situation and I hoped that telling the story visually might bring it to a wider audience. It’s no way to live.”
In the video, the child’s voice is that of Joanna Siewierska, while the male voiceover is that of Niall Crampton.
