Father and Daughter: A Tale of Eternal Longing

Father and Daughter: A Tale of Eternal Longing

Father and Daughter is the 2000 Dutch animated short film, made by Michaël Dudok De Wit, which won the 2000 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. In the film, a father says goodbye to his young daughter and leaves. As the wide landscapes are shown living through their seasons, the girl lives through hers also. She becomes a young woman, has a family and in time she becomes old. Yet within her there is always a deep longing for her father. At the conclusion of the film, the now elderly daughter begins to walk through the overgrown, dried up riverbed, finally traveling in the afterlife to meet her father once again.
