Last night I finally saw

Last night I finally saw Michael Dudok de Wit’s short film masterpiece “Father and Daughter”, as part of Spike and Mike’s classical animation festival. It’s a beautiful film, well deserving of its 2001 Oscar win. Not needing dialogue, each shot in the pencil and charcoal film is brilliantly composed and reads perfectly. Even if the big studios turn their back on traditional animation, there will always be a place for it in the hands of independent artists with compelling stories.
