Movie this Month: A trio of short films.
Father and Daughter - 8 minutes An Oscar-winning film for Best Animated Short, 2000: This bittersweet tale explores the deep bond between father and daughter. Set against a wide landscape, a father bids farewell to his young daughter. Through the seasons, the girl matures to a woman, raising a family of her own and ages. Yet her father remains with her always.
The Neighbor’s Window - 20 minutes Academy Award, Life Action Short, 2019: We watch a mother with young children, whose life is shaken up when two free-spirited twenty-somethings move in across the street. Inspired by a true story by Diane Weipert. A modern morality story.
The Danish Poet - 15 minutes, Oscar-winner for Best Animated Short 2007: Can we trace the chain of events that lead to our own birth? Is our existence just coincidence? Do little things matter? Follow Kasper, whose creative well had run dry, on holiday to Norway to meet a famous writer. It appears that a spell of bad weather, an angry dog, slippery planks, a careless postman, hungry goats and other seemingly unrelated factors might play important roles in the big scheme of things, after all.
