The Kid Should See This

Father and Daughter by Michaël Dudok De Wit

Michaël Dudok De Wit’s Academy Award-winning short film about the strength of love and longing, despite the passage of time: Father and Daughter (2000).

Father and Daughter
If you’re a fan of Dudok De Wit’s work, be sure to watch The Red Turtle, a beautifully animated, wordless film that he directed for Studio Ghibli. Common Sense Media rates it for ages 8+. (Parents rate it 12+.) It includes the death of an animal, so you may want to screen it first. Highly recommended.
