Father and Daughter (2)

‘Father and Daughter’ is a short Dutch animation film by Michaël Dudok De Wit. The story is about a father and daughter cycling together through wide Dutch landscapes. One day the father says goodbye to his young daughter and leaves. As the landscapes live through their seasons so the girl lives through hers. She becomes a young woman, has a family and in time she becomes old. Within her there is always a deep longing for her father.

The short film was produced in 2000 and won the 2000 Academy Award for Animated Short Film.

The story is a bit sad, but very beautiful, that’s why we want to share it with you.
