That speech I gave at the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992 truly has a life of its own. In 2019, Swiss artist Simone Giampaolo reached out to tell me about a project he and a team of fellow animators were working on… a collaborative animation of the 6 minutes of the speech to the UN. In this visual poem, they have created something magical and moving. Trailer was released – Earth Day 2020 and is now making its way around the world at various esteemed international film festivals!

‘Only a Child’ was a winner at the 2020 Los Angeles Animation Festival – Best Mixed Media!
