My Brother Chases Dinosaurs

Winner EFA Young Audience Award 2020

When Jack's little brother Gio is born, Jack is led to believe Gio is special and has superpowers. But as they grow up, reality bites. Gio has Down's syndrome, not superpowers. About to embark on his new life at high school, Jack grows increasingly ashamed of his little brother and his unpredictable and spontaneous behaviour. Jack pretends that he doesn't have a brother and hides the existence of Gio from his new classmates and, above all, from Arianna, the first girl he ever loved. It becomes more and more difficult to conceal the truth, and as time passes Jack learns an important lesson - from Gio.

This exquisite gem won the EFA Young Audience Award in 2020. The jury consisted of 2,000 jurors aged 12 to 14 from 32 countries.
