Every Child is an animated short film produced in 1979 by the National Film Board of Canada in association with UNICEF.

This is a film without words, incorporating sounds by Les Mîmes Électriques (The Electric Mimes).[1]


To commemorate the declaration of the UNICEF about the rights about the child, this film illustrates the theme "Every child has the right for a name and nationality when born." There is even a reminder at the end of the film for the viewer to support UNICEF.

This animated short tells the story of a child rejected from every home, then found by two tramps who give her love and tenderness.[1]
