Father and Daughter

The title of this 8 minute video, Father and Daughter, caught my attention. After all, I’m the father of two daughters. So I watched it.


In a previous post I talked about a man who communicated an idea, a philosophy in 18 minutes that made people think in a different way. This piece does something very similar… yes, it’s beautifully illustrated and animated, but it’s the story that grabs you.

This short video makes me want to go home, hug my daughters, and never let them go. What can you make people feel in 8 minutes?

About the video: Father and Daughter is an 8 minute film by Dutch filmmaker Michael Dudok de Wit. It won an Oscar for best animated short.
