Another Story

USA, 1994 (MIFF 1994, Youth Film Festival)

Director: Lisa Wood Shapiro

This is the story of a land far away where an evil king has passed a law against those subjects who are different. Banished from the kingdom, the exiles live happily enough in a cottage deep in the forest...until the King sends his horsemen to destroy them. Through a Brothers Grimm-like fairy tale, Another Story tells an allegorical tale to illustrate the tragedy of discrimination.
