mikey & jools
Multi-award winning animation “Mikey & Jools Keep Safe” is aimed at children who find themselves in unsafe situations without knowing what they can do to protect themselves.
Eight year-old Jools and her big brother Mikey escape into a vibrant world of imagination to escape the reality of domestic abuse they experience at home.
It has been developed for children who have experienced and are recovering from domestic abuse. It shows how a brother and sister make a safe decision when they experience ‘shouting and hurting’ in their home. The guidance notes are available here.
Mikey & Jools has won international recognition and awards, including:
- Gold Plaque at Chicago International Film Festival Intercom, Educational/Youth Audience category in Chicago
- Torc at Celtic Film Festival in Derry, for Best Educational Film
- Award of Merit from the Accolade Competition in the USA, in the Educational/instructional category
- Silver at CHINH Kids Film Festival in India, in the Early Education category
