UKA (All Ages), 3 min.
By Valle Comba, NYICFF 2017


Life for Uka is grey and dull until she finds a way of changing how she sees the world.

Talking points:

  • How does Uka feel in the begining of the film? How does she feel in the end? What changed?
  • How does the filmmaker use color to help tell this story?

Get Creative: Uka uses broken bottles, which would have been considered trash, to make her art. What can you find in your home that could be reused to make a work of art? (We do not recommend using broken glass!)

Plus, check out the end credits of the film to see the character design sketches for UKA!
