DDB NY Launches ‘The Girl Who Couldn’t Cry’ for Water is Life

Yesterday, DDB New York launched a follow-up to last year’s “Kenya Bucket List” for Water Is Life entitled “The Girl Who Doesn’t Cry.”

The 1:20 spot examines the difficulty of life without adequate drinking water, utilizing the realization that dehydration can prevent the body from producing tears. DDB New York tells the story of a girl born into a brothel, who picks through a landfill, watches her brother die, and is forced to marry underage. Despite the tragic events of her life the girl is unable to cry, due to dehydration. While the story can tend toward the melodramatic at times, the excellent production and editing help make the spot emotionally affecting — a thoughtful examination of how living without drinkable water can make an already difficult life worse.

We didn’t know there was side to them, but hey, you learn something new every day. Exhaustive list of credits after the jump.
