SIMFEROPOL, 2 September 2016, 16:45 – REGNUM In Crimea, the artist Ksenia Simonova presented the film in the genre of sand animation “Angel on the Shore“, recounting, as the author says, “the greatest pain in the world”. The image is about the Syrian boy Alan Kurdi, who died in the Mediterranean exactly one year ago, on September 2, 2015, when he and his family tried to flee Syria, reports a REGNUM correspondent.
Then the photographs of the body of a boy lying on the shore of the Turkish city of Bodrum surrounded the whole world. After this tragedy, the Italian composer Giuseppe Morgante created the musical work “Like Alan” in memory of the little boy who fell victim of the war. Morgante suggested to Simonova to create a story in the sand of a child with this music: this film was born.
