A group of budding animators from Peckham have released a new film about the ‘true’ story of a samosa going to space, writes Simon Throssell…

‘Samosa into Space’ is an animated music video about the ‘smiles samosas put on your face’ made by students at the Rainbow Collective Animation Club.

While ‘stuck in lockdown three’, a group of people on earth decide to send a bag of the Indian snack into space.

As the rocket reaches outer space, the wonderfully drawn animations show how excited the aliens and spacelings are for their delivery.

The song’s catchy lyrics, written by musician Ibbi, will get the chorus of ‘They sent a samosa into space’ stuck in your head for weeks.

The film is the latest in a series made by the club during the lockdown.

The group of 8-12-year-olds kept audiences entertained with ‘Anime vs Coronavirus’; a short animation about three popular anime characters heading to Peckham to destroy the coronavirus.

They also created a film celebrating their Black History Month heroes honouring the outstanding achievements of Lewis Hamilton, Martin Luther King and Barack Obama, to name just a few.
