James Maciver - The Fall (English Subt.)

"The hardest isn't the handicap, but the exclusion we face everyday."

Advertiser APF France Handicap

Date of First Broadcast/Publication
Business Sector Charities, Foundations, Volunteers
Story The Fall shows the anguish experienced by a wheelchair user, including inaccessible shelves in supermarkets, job interview rejection and limited health care support. Each set-back triggers a flash-back to the moment of his tragic accident when he fell backwards down a long flight of stone steps. 
 
The role is played by dancer Hamid Allouache, a former stage manager for Le Ballet de l'Opéra de Paris who has been paraplegic since 2016 when he suffered a spinal injury. He now dances for the likes of choreographers Akram Khan and Sadeck (Waff) Berrabah for the Tokyo Olympics 2020. 
Story (original language) Diffusé en TV et en digital à partir du 10 décembre, journée internationale des droits de l’homme, l’association montre que les idées préconçues, les obstacles et exclusions du quotidien de la société sont un problème majeur pour les personnes en situation de handicap, les empêchant d’avoir les mêmes droits et les mêmes chances que les autres. Une idée résumée dans un message de campagne fort : Le plus difficile ce n’est pas notre handicap mais l’exclusion qu’on nous impose.
Problem The painful exclusion from everyday activities experienced by people with disabilities is exposed in an emotionally charged campaign The Fall for the French disability association APF France.

Igor Borghi - Everyone deserves a future

"War separates what love creates."

TitleEveryone deserves a future
Agency
Campaign Everyone deserves a future
Advertiser Emergency
Brand Emergency
Date of First Broadcast/Publication
Business Sector Human Rights
Tagline Let’s make 2022 a year of peace, not war.
Story Emergency and Ogilvy Italy ask us to reflect on the consequences of war through the eyes of those who experienced it. The video narrates the tough choice of a mother, in a country hit by war. The story starts just like any other day, with the girl getting ready to go to school, but ends with an unexpected finale: a painful separation, just like the ones that many people around the world are forced to experience everyday.
Philosophy War separates what love creates. Just like every year, Emergency and Ogilvy Italy are back with a wish for the new year and an entire operation dedicated to a very relevant topic: the necessity to abolish war, wherever it may be. The message “Let’s make 2022 a year of peace, not war” took life with a video distributed on the brand’s social media on a global level, and an outdoor campaign that was aired on 100 out of home spaces covering all underground stations in Milan, and had the victims of war and their experiences as protagonists.
Problem 82.4 million people worldwide had to leave their homes, families and lives, due to persecution, war, violence, or human rights violations.
