Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Women Empowerment and Child Protection Minister Linda Amalia Sari Gumelar has called for the production of more children`s films in the country.

"All related parties must work towards producing more and more children`s movies with moral lessons in order to build the character of the nation`s future," Linda said here on Monday.

She explained that children`s movies with positive messages were urgently needed to balance the surging tide of horror and violent films to which kids have access.

"I am very concerned that the lack of children`s films can force the next generation to watch only violent and horror movies because they have no other choice," Linda noted.

She said children`s movies with inspirational stories could help develop their moral character as well as creativity.
