Just Kids (Mensjesrechten)
Black and white
Jason (aged 12) is in his last year of primary school and used to be bullied. Some kids think he is weird because he prefers acting and singing to playing football. The bullying made a big impact on Jason’s life and therefore he keeps to himself. He sees his class as a game of chess: the white pieces are his friends and the black pieces are the enemy. He wants to safely reach the other side, but how? He decides to write a song about his feelings and hopes his classmates will understand him better… ‘Black and White’ is about the right to be protected against discrimination and bullying.
