New short film explores Tel Aviv from the perspective of a three-year-old
In a new two minute film, a young boy called Geffen takes us for a stroll around his hometown of Tel Aviv, Israel. We join him for a snack at the markets, run along the beach front, and moment of rest at a public bench.
The film causes us to reflect on how young children experience cities with a renewed empathy.
We notice how Geffen reaches out for the handrail as he steps past a water feature; we see him pause to observe a rainbow reflected in a water fountain.
It shows us how differently young children experience cities compared to adults; how much more vulnerable they are to hazards such as uneven paths or bad air quality.
It also displays the wonderful potential of cities to be environments that stimulate the development, learning and growth of babies and toddlers.
We’d love to see a photo of your city from the perspective of your baby or toddler!
