The movie has been made based on Iranian children’s author Susan Taqdis story of the same title.

Géraldine Soto, Chrystel Mussy-Masucci and Nathalie Leffray are the members of the jury for the Young Audiences Short Films in Competition.

The animation tells the story of a passenger, who is eating while sitting on the back seat of a moving car, throwing his rubbish out of the car window. This rubbish is collected, along with all the other rubbish that has been thrown out onto the road.

A jury composed of Canadian art expert Marco De Blois, Korean director and producer Dahee Jeong and Art Ludique Le Musée Managing Director Diane Launier from France will judge the movies in this category.
